Snowdonia National Park will close the area’s busiest mountains following unprecedented visitor numbers last weekend.
The Snowdonia National Park Authority said it was working with Gwynedd Council, with the help of emergency Welsh Government legislation, to bring in the measures, which will mean no parking or access to popular sites including Snowdon, Ogwen and Cadair Idris.
Emyr Williams, chief executive of Snowdonia National Park said:

We encourage local people who live within and close to the boundaries of the national park to continue to exercise from their doorstep.
We ask those people to visit our website or email for more information.

For those who do not live within walking distance our message is clear – do not visit the national park until the Government’s guidelines to avoid unnecessary travel has been lifted.

There will be no parking and the mountains will be closed – respect the Government guidance – stay at home to stay safe.”
