Slate Trail

The Snowdonia Slate Trail is an 83 mile circular route that takes in some of the less frequented but still beautiful parts of Northern Snowdonia. This challenge takes 7 days to complete. On average we walk about 12 miles per day. 



Our Snowdonia Slate Trail Challenge is ideal for regular walkers with a moderate to good level of fitness (Think walking 12 miles over 7 hours, for 7 days). Your Guide will meet you the night before the challenge to ensure you are all set and arrange a meeting point the following morning. We recommend starting the trail at Betws-y-Coed.
