Dolgellau Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Dolgellau
"Despite very low visibility from around 2/3rds of the way up - and so no views/camera opps - would highly recommend a walk up Cader Idris.
We went up the Minfforrd path, which takes you round the horse shoe of summits. It's a reasonably tough walk - up in about 3 hours and down in around 1.5 ho..."urs (with few breaks). Most of it is easy to follow without a map, although there are a couple of areas where it is less clear.
The going is frequently fairly steep, but basic walking shoes were enough when we went. Note it can be a lot colder at the top than at the bottom - we went from T-shirts to 2 layers and ski jackets.
From photos we have seen, looks like you can also get stunning views!

"Hiked up from Minfford (south way) on the weekend. The weather was amazing but taking that aside this mountain and path is stunning. It is a moderate/hard route up with lots of steps but you are rewarding with amazing views in all directions. We didn't have time to do the whole walk so went up to th..."e peak and back down in just over 3 hours. Would really recommend this if you like hiking and want a small adventure.

"One of the best mountains to walk anywhere. The views are breathtaking, the Pony Path, MInffordd Path and path from Llanfihangel y Pennant are all straightforward (more care needed on the Foxes Path!)."
