Wheelchair Access in Snowdonia

Hi

I am a wheelchair user, I use an electric wheelchair and am as adventurous as the wheelchair allows me to be.

I am holidaying in North Wales soon and am looking for suitable walks minus styles, steps.

Can anyone suggest any suitable walks?

Look forward to replies, thanks.

A. I believe the path up to and round Llyn Idwal - see Walks

gw115 Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr from Ogwen Cottage, Llyn Ogwen

gw147 Y Garn (The Glyders) from Ogwen Cottage, Llyn Ogwen

gw187 Y Garn (Glyders) and The Glyders from Ogwen Cottage, Llyn Ogwen

gw219 Llyn y Cwn from Ogwen Cottage, Llyn Ogwen

- is constructed from rounded stones with deep clefts in between and, in my unqualified opinion, very difficult to negotiate with a wheel chair. Sorry about that.

This may not be quite what you had in mind - but The Snowdon Mountain Railway goes all the way to the summit of Snowdon - and I'm sure you could hitch a ride. Since this is the highest point in England and Wales you would certainly get a feel for the high mountains.

The railway starts in Llanberis on the A4086 between Caernarfon to Betws-y-Coed.
