Walking Moel Siabod mountain - Snowdonia

Moel SiabodMoel Siabod offers the classic mountain walk at the very heart of Snowdonia. The mountain sits isolated from the other peaks of northern Snowdonia, above the villages of Betws-y-Coed and Capel Curig. At 872m (2860 feet) it's the 22nd highest peak in Wales. Moel Siabod is everything a mountain should be - shapely, challenging, rewarding and offers the most marvellous views.

The National Mountain Centre, Plas-y-Brenin, is located at the foot of Moel Siabod. From the top of the mountain, it is reputedly possible to see 13 of the 14 highest peaks in Wales on a clear day without turning your head.

Two popular starting points, the first being Pont Cyfyng, near Capel Curig on the A5. The challenging route includes a superb scramble on the ascent which adds to the quality of this walk. 5.5 miles.

The second route is from Plas-y-Brenin National Mountaineering Centre in Capel Curig. This is a more gradual, 6.5 mile walk to the top.

There are parking facilities at Capel Curig and daily buses from Llanrwst, Betws-y-Coed and Porthmadog.
