Day Walks in Snowdonia features 20 circular routes, between 5 and 13.7 miles (8 and 22 kilometres) in length, suitable for hill walkers of all abilities. Also included are two of the UK’s classic scrambles: The Bochlwyd Horseshoe and The Snowdon Horseshoe.
The routes are split into three areas – Northern Snowdonia, Central Snowdonia and Southern Snowdonia – and include walks to the most iconic and beautiful peaks in the National Park, including; Snowdon, Y Glyderau, the Carneddau peaks, Moel Siabod, Cnicht, the Rhinogs, and Cadair Idris.
The author, Tom Hutton, is a Wales local and keen hill walker and a well-respected journalist for a range of outdoor publications. This is Tom’s second book with Vertebrate Publishing, following the successful and popular Wales Mountain Biking.
Tom Hutton is an award-winning writer and photographer with a true passion for exploration and a love of high places. Since quitting his ‘proper’ job in his late 30s, his work has appeared in all the major UK outdoor publications and he has also written and illustrated a number of guidebooks – including Wales Mountain Biking for Vertebrate. He’s never happier than when he’s in the mountains, whether walking, climbing, skiing or even mountain biking and he has a self-confessed unhealthy obsession with maps. He originally hails from Bristol but now lives among the mountains of Mid Wales with his journalist partner, Steph Duits and Black Labrador, Du.

'To say you'd done all the routes in this book would really mean you had savoured the best that Snowdonia has to offer a hill walker. Priced at only £12.95, with lots of colour photos that'll make you want to pull your boots on and head straight out of the door, there's little reason not to buy it.'
Ray Wood, Snowdonia-Active
'Day Walks in Snowdonia is a cracking buy for anyone relatively new to the area, but don't dismiss it out of hand even if you know the obvious peaks and routes. Chances are that you'll still find some new inspiration in the less frequented parts of the region. Added to that, it's impeccably organised and nicely written with some great images and all the usual Vertebrate Publishing add-ons.'
