Dont go up the Miners Track though, thats on all fours scrambling :shock:

When I was a kid my father made me and my brother climb snowdon by the miners track. Conveniently he neglected to tell us a train went up the other side :evil: Typical scotsman my dad, he was not paying for the train :roll:

Snowdon has a handy railway all the way up - its not steep :lol:

Put your bike on the train to summit, scramble it via the Crib Goch to summit, then bike down :wink:

Voluntary agreement keeps bikes off between 10 and, er, 6 I think, May to October. There's enough light to get up and down before or after those times in high summer. Train runs in autumn/winter, but not to the summit and you can't take bikes on it anyway. Up Llanberis path and down Rangers/Telegraph Valley back to Llanberis is an ace loop - take your technical descending head ;)
