In my last post climbing Snowdon, on a trail to Cadair Idris I showed you our hiking trail to the summit. In this post, we will be talking about hiking tips, camping Snowdon trails and camp sites near Snowdon. Firstly their are many flat spots on the trail to camp.
The only thing you need to be aware of is the weather when planning camping Snowdon trails or any part of Snowdonia National Park. Most parts that are flat on the trail are fairly elevated and some spots are susceptible to low hanging clouds so you dont want to camp on a trail on Snowdon and end up catch a cold and dying of hyperthermia. This is where checking the weather before you go camping is important as that will allow you to pack accordingly.
