Welsh 3000s North to South Map

An awesome 24 hour challenge or a great excuse to visit some of the best mountains in the area over several days.

Description

The Welsh 3000s is a classic hiking route in Snowdonia National Park. It connects 15 mountain peaks, each over 3000ft (914m). Although some people push to complete all the peaks within 24 hours, you can just as easily enjoy the Welsh 3000s over a weekend.

In fact, unless you enjoy beasting up hills and across ridgelines, it's much more fun to take it a bit slower. You can appreciate the views and the scrambling edges. Rather than dragging yourself round to collapsing in a panting heap at the final summit, wondering what exactly happened today.

We'll guide you through each of the 15 peaks and a common route to string them all together into one epic hike.
