Left Llanberis up Snowden St (opposite the chippie), continued up zigzagging to Fron Goch then the lane past the Care Home following this out of town, becoming a track, up to ca SH561598 where an indistinct grassy track leads off left, curving S to join a larger track up Moel Eilio, then along ridge over Foel Gron, then a short diversion off the ridge path out to Foel Goch, dropping dwon to cross the track at Bwlch Maesgwm, and reascending along to Moel Cynghorion, descending N (pathless) down steep grassy slopes to the Helfa-fawr, then along tracks and roads back into Llanberis (5h20m)kdbennett10/06/2024

Howling wind, so smooth grassy slopes good, fine summit. Now all the way back down to Llanberis to find I got a parking ticket, careless!richardrosser17/10/2022
Last mountain of the day and great to finally finish what was a tough day on the legs. I added Snowdon onto this walk not realising the amount of uphill walking there was still to do. Blessed with great views again, its a straight forward path to follow down towards Llanberis.Buckleymon11/10/2022
With Yeltzbagger. Met Ketzster half way up and again near the top. Carried on to Moel Cynghorion. Lovely sunny day. Came up by Snowdonia Ranger path.Stevie n Tay20/09/2022

From Snowdon Ranger car park, up the main track, but taking the left fork to revisit Foel Goch to bag it as a Dewey, then along the ridge over Foel Gron to Moel Eliio. Then back tracked and over Moel Cynghorion, before re-joining the Snowdon Ranger path. A tough climb up this section in the heat of a very hot day to reach Crib y Ddysgl, then joining the long line of hikers heading for Yr Wyddfa, the Snowdon summit, but only a 10 minute queue to reach the trig. A long, nearly 9 hour, day in the heat to cover the 22km with 1700m of ascent.silverwolf_alan10/08/2022
A lovely sunny day looking down on Llanberis.sconnolly0106/08/2022
10.6 mile walk from end of little road leaving Llanberis (not many spaces to leave cars). Following good path into Maesgwm valley then a fairly steep pull onto Moel Cynghorion. We descended back to the col and climbed very steeply onto Foel Goch, then followed the lovely grassy ridge over Foel Gron and onto Moel Eilio (2nd time bagged) then a long descent to Bwlch Y Groes. Easy up onto Cefn-Du then back to col and descended along good tracks back to car. 968m ascent in high cloud/sunny/breezy conditions. Great views of the surrounding hills, a few people about.DanTrig13/06/2022

With Dave Wragg in round from Rhyd Ddu inc Snowdon, in improving weather, no rain. Rounsfell31/08/2019
Round of Kinghorion and Eilio from Snowdon ranger station. Car park full had to park a mile to north west. More black marks for the rangers for mistaking Yr Aran for Y Lliwedd on an information board and, more seriously, the disgusting state of the CP toilets. Persistent cloud layer at 600m but through occasional breaks, especially from Eilio summit, Snowdon summit could be seen to be above the clouds. Descended direct from first col SE of Eilio directly to where I left car, animal trails through bracken. Not sure if that was lawful but there was no evident objection.Topographer5725/08/2019
