- Snowdon car park for biking up Llanberis path
Anywhere in llanberris is a good place to start, path heads up out the back of the station
Pen Y Pass is the place to start on foot, you don’t want a bike up there!!

Nope, that’s at the bottom of the Pyg / Miners tracks. You want to be in Llanberis itself, I’ve parked in the one by the lake before but you’ll need to be there early to get a spot.
Or if you’re planning on heading down the Rangers path there’s a wee car park at the bottom of that.Posted 3 months agosarawakMember
Yes. Pen y Pass will be fine. Costs an arm and a leg and if you get there much after 8.30 the place is full. But it’s a good place to start.
How are you going to get from there to the Llanberis path? It is a long ridedown the road, and an even longer ride back up at the end of the day.
I suggest you invest in an OS map and learn how to read it.
You are a MRT call out just waiting to happen. Take lots of warm clothing…you will probably find a lot more snowflakes on the summit.Posted 3 months agowhitestoneMember
Crikey, the Monday morning crowd are up nice and early! 😳
If you are going up and down the Llanberis path then any of the car parks in Llanberis will do. It’s a while since I lived there so don’t know which charge and which don’t these days.
If you are doing the “classic” loop of: up the Llanberis path, down the Ranger’s and Telegraph Valley then either Llanberis or the car park at the Snowdon Ranger (here – http://streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=256494&Y=355107&A=Y&Z=120 ) near Rhyd Ddu will suffice. Again I don’t know the car park charges these days.Posted 3 months agojohnnystormSubscriber
You could also stay at the hotel opposite the train station and you’d be parked right at the start. There is also nice bunkhouse opposite The Heights pub which is where I stayed last time I was there.
As others have said….make sure you’re 100% with a map. My mate was up there this weekend and there is still snow about.Posted 3 months agostevehSubscriber
You don’t say when you plan to do it but note that from 1st may to end of September the voluntary ban is in place and no bikes on the mountain from 10am-5pm. Even before then if you plan to go up on a weekend do it early or late or it’ll be very busy and lots of stopping for folks.Posted 3 months ago
