Over the bank holiday weekend, we had gorgeous sunny weather and energy for a more significant walk than just around town. We decided to take an afternoon and hike up Crimpiau, near Capel Curig in Snowdonia. It’s only a 3.5-mile hike, so nothing too long, with a 275-meter ascent.
I wouldn’t recommend this hike if you don’t like steep ascents or descents, or if walking on rock gives you trouble. The lower areas could be boggy in wet weather, but a wonderful rocky path cuts through to make it more comfortable. The ascent definitely had us breathing hard at times, but nothing too challenging. I think the hardest part was the descent, which had some slightly unpleasant inclines with a bit of loose rock. All in all, though, not bad!
