    The Snowdon Ranger MTB GPS Route in Snowdon in North Wales is an 11.5 mile mountain bike route on the largest mountain in Wales. It's a big step up in technical difficulty from the Llanberis Path route with lots of steep, loose riding on big rocks with lots of switchbacks. It also gets you away from the hordes of walkers so you can really concentrate on pushing your limits. Please adhere to the times of the voluntary bike ban.

    1. Start from the main car park, next to the Electric Mountain visitor centre, in Llanberis (GR580601). At the exit of the car park turn left onto the main road and ride past the Electric Mountain visitor centre on the left. Continue following the road straight on, past the Snowdon Mountain Railway at the far side of Llanberis, then climb to a mini roundabout junction just after (GR583596). Turn right and follow the lane past the line of houses on the left to a junction with a lane on the right. Go straight on past the end of the houses then across a cattle grid for the first climb where the road becomes very steep. At the top of the very steep incline go past Pen-y-Ceunant tea house on the left. After the tea house continue climbing the lane to a gate where the lane turns right. Once through the gate follow the lane right up a short, steep climb to the signposted junction with the start of the Llanberis Path on the left (GR581589).
