/ Bangor to Llanberis
I'm arriving very late into Bangor train station on Saturday (around midnight), and have to get to Llanberis. Any good routes, preferably not on roads?
Best bet is over Bangor Mountain on the minor roads via Minffordd and through Waen-Wen to Pentir. Cross the main road and head SW on another little road, straight across the main road past Pen Dinas and down to Penisarwaun and Bryn Refail. From there is a lakeside cycle path along Llyn Padarn.
To the OP. Another option from Bryn Refail is to walk along the north side of Llyn Padarn following the tourist railway tracks. If the moon is up you'd get good views from that side, whereas the cycle track is very enclosed by woodland.
