Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) is by far the busiest peak in Snowdonia 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.
