Yr Wyddfa is by far the busiest peak in Eryri National Park. Over 600,000 climbers reach the summit from year to year. Some paths to the summit also offer fantastic horse riding, running and mountain biking opportunities.

Voluntary restrictions are in place for activities such as mountain biking to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all on the mountain.

Current restrictions

Between 1 May-30 September from 10:00-17:00 you should not:

  • Cycle to or from the summit of Yr Wyddfa
  • Use any part of the Llanberis Path
  • Use the Miner’s path from Pen y Pass to Llyn Llydaw
  • Use the Snowdon Ranger path to the summit. However, you can use the lower section from Llanberis (Snowdon Ranger via Maescwm to Cwellyn)
  • Use the Rhyd Ddu path from the Pen Lôn area to the summit

These restrictions will not be applicable between 1 October-30 April.

Laws that apply to cycling
