The Snowdonia Slate Trail is a 134km (83 mile) trail which enables walkers to explore the beauty and industrial heritage of the slate quarries and villages of northern Snowdonia. Stay with us at the start and finish of this truly unique trail.
The route starts at Porth Penrhyn near Bangor and ends at Bethesda attracting walkers to villages such as Llanllechid, Bethesda, Dinorwig, Llanberis, Waunfawr, Nantlle, Rhyd Ddu, Beddgelert, Croesor, Ffestiniog and Penmachno. The trail visits some of the less-frequented parts of Snowdonia, passing through all the major mountain ranges, offering a range of experiences from mountain to forest, lake to river, from the valley to the sea. From small sleepy villages to the busy honeypots of Llanberis and Betws y Coed, this trail provides a wealth of variety.
The trail is also a joy for narrow gauge railway enthusiasts, as it visits the Penrhyn Quarry Railway, Llanberis Lake Railway, Snowdon Mountain Railway, the Welsh Highland Light Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway.
