A walk from Ogwen that takes in two of the Welsh 3,000’s and gives great views of the Ogwen valley and across to the Snowdon range. It’s a haul up from Llyn Idwal on a good stone laid path but once on the heights the walk around the head of the valley to little visited Elidir Fawr is well worth it. I came back the same way but you can make it a linear walk and drop down into Llanberis. To read more click https://jimearl6.com/a-walk-up-y-garn-and-elidir-fawr/#more-4224
