I'm planning a Snowden ride next April with some mates to celebrate a very special event.
The only accommodation available for us on the date is at Rhyd-Ddu & looking at the map the nearest & shortest route to the top of Snowden from the bunkhouse is the Rangers Path.
I was wondering having looked at the map whether it is possible to ride/push the bike up the Rangers Path to the top?
Is it really steep & a chuffing nightmare all the way?
Is it steep at the start & then easier further up?
I'm looking for some local knowledge on the route please.
The plan such as it is, is to get to the top of Snowden & then ride back down the Llanberis path.
An alternative is to ride/drive round to Llanberis, up the path to Snowden then back down via the Rangers Path.
Any assistance gratefully received.
