About Snowdonia Slate Trail

This 83-mile trail takes you on a journey back in time when Snowdonia was the centre of the slate industry. While experiencing the haunting, and maybe sad, beauty of this abandoned industrial heritage, the Trail walker will also have the opportunity to walk past working quarries while the National Slate Museum of Wales and a number of slate related attractions are also visited.

This Trail is also a joy for narrow gauge railway enthusiasts and visits the Penrhyn Quarry railway, Llanberis Lake railway, Snowdon Mountain railway, the Welsh Highland Light Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway.

But this trail is not just about the slate industry and its railways. It visits less-frequented, but beautiful, parts of Snowdonia, passing through all the major mountain ranges, offering a range of experiences from mountain to forest, lake to river, from the valley to the sea. All along the trail are fascinating things to be seen and experienced. From small sleepy villages to the centres of Llanberis and Betws y Coed, this trail provides a wealth of variety.

Full information, along with downloadable leaflets, are available on www.snowdoniaslatetrail.org
