Another epic day out, that could well be done in reverse and combined with the previous route to create a mini LDP. In fact, you could link it to the Snowdon Challenge and create an absolute monster. Starting off at Maentwrog or the Oakley Arms, you first ascend Moelwyn Bach, then Mawr before the decsision is taken to head for Cnicht or Allt Fawr. Cnicht makes a logical continuation before then bagging the outliers of Moel Druman and Allt Fawr. Returning over these, you have a wild walk over Moel Meirch and the just too short Carnedd y Cribau, but one of the best views of Snowdon. Finally ascending the least interesting ridge of Siabod before descending whichever route you see fit. 8 summits bagged in this excursion with only the tops to the east of the A470 left over (Manod and Moel Penamnen). 3 Moelwynion from Maentwrog to Capel 4 Rhinogydd from Traws to Bontddu Where is Bradgate Park? – Bradgate Park is located 6 miles north west of Leicester, and was the birthplace of Lady Jane Grey in 1537. It is 850 acres and home to 400 deer.

Where is Helvellyn? – Helvellyn is England’s third highest peak, and located in the Lake District of Cumbria. Located between the two lakes Ullswater and Thirlmere. Where is Blakeney Point? – Blakeney Point is on the north Norfolk coast, between Wells-next-the-Sea and Cromer. Route Highlights: The atmospheric and popular retreat of Llanddwyn Island is a picturesque cove jutting out into the Irish sea. At the farthest point, you have the distinctive Tŵr Mawr (Big Tower) lighthouse. Not quite an island, Llanddwyn is easily reached by foot at all times bar exceptionally high tides. Second place went to the iconic Snowdon mountain in Wales, where the challenging hiking trails and jaw-dropping landscapes continue to draw in visitors from all around the world. Of the top 100 – here are a few of our favourites, which we admit are a little biasaed towards mountain walks and the Welsh Coast. 32 Anglesey Coast Path
