Walking programme 2020
We have a programme of monthly walks, both locally and further afield. Walks may vary in length from about 8 to 15 miles. The outline programme is set out below. The programme is subject to change and more information will be made available nearer the time for each walk. Additionally each monthly weekend away will have ad-hoc walks organised by people on the meet.
25th or 26th January 2020. Day and route to be confirmed nearer the date dependant on weather conditions
High mountain walk/scramble. If lots of snow, then possibly one of the ridges around Snowdon/Glyders. If less snow, then possibly some combinations around the Snowdon Horseshoe – depending on numbers and aspirations, perhaps all or some of the following:
Ordinary walk up Snowdon
Snowdon Horseshoe clockwise or anticlockwise
Extended Horseshoe, starting up the North Ridge
End the day in the Moel Siabod Cafe.
As the days are short this will be an early start.

Please respect the countryside and follow the Countryside Code
Many club members like to bring their dogs along, and provided they are well-behaved and kept under control this is not usually a problem. Dogs may be excluded from CRoW Access Land (except on rights of way). Please check for any restrictions before bringing your dog.
Please remember that even where there are no bird restrictions, your dog may disturb ground-nesting birds,and other wildlife as well as farm animals. Dogs found worrying farm animals could be shot. The Countryside Code has some specific advice for dog walkers.
Please always clean up after your dog.
