Snowdon Trek – Wales Air Ambulance – May 2019
Date/Time: 18/05/2019, All Day Location: Snowdon
We are trekking to the highest point in Wales to help Wales Air Ambulance save lives.
Take the Miners Path to the summit of the highest mountain in Wales, stand at 1085 metres and enjoy the amazing views across Snowdonia. Fingers crossed for a clear day to see across Cwm Brwynoc, Llanberis and over the Menai Straits to Anglesey.
You can find out more about Snowdon and the Miners Track here.
