Beddgelert and Mynydd Sygyn Circular Walk I was still feeling somewhat under the weather on my last day of this current trip to Beddgelert. And very tired after an exhausting previous day ascending Snowdon via the Pyg track. So I decided to do my short local circular walk.

Visible below as I climbed up the steep track was the soon to be opened last stretch of the Welsh Highland Railway. Today with an engineers train at work in Bedgelert station.

I was slow on the climb to the summit. But was greeted with the view of the Moelwyns to the East.

I would have walked further but felt very tired, so decided to drop down the track to the Copper Mine. And then head back alongside the river to Beddgelert, at the end of another superb trip to Snowdonia.
