A walk to Glyder Fach

Visited the Snowdonia region in Wales June of last year for a week, and on the 1st day attempted the walk to Glyder Fach via the miners track. Started out alongside Llyn Ogwen close to Tryfan and took the path (faint and steep at times) that runs alongside, providing good views of Llyn Ogwen and Foel Goch.

After awhile Llyn Bochlwyd will come into view. Paused here to admire the views of Y Garn and Foel Goch and take a breather.

You also get a great view of Glyder Fach before heading on to the style in the drystone wall and the miners track up.

This is the view once you get to the top of this steep path.

And this impressive sight of Tryfan in all it’s glory.

We didnt get all the way to the top of Glyder Fach as we somehow managed to lose sight of the way up.

Took this panorama before returning whence we came.
