Around the Rhinogs


61 km / 38 miles

It is essential therefore that anybody undertaking this walk should be fit, well equipped and have good map reading and compass skills. The route itself explores the fascinating and varied country that surrounds the Rhinogs, reputed to be the roughest and wildest mountain range in Snowdonia.
