Cader Idris needs your help!
The British Mountaineering Council has launched its second ‘Mend Our Mountains’ campaign, in an effort to raise funds to tackle the ever increasing erosion problems on the hills and mountains of our National Parks.
Cader Idris in the south of the Snowdonia National Park is one of 13 project areas that will benefit from funds raised, with sections of the Mynydd Moel path, the second highest peak of the Cader Idris range, being developed.
Over recent years the number of walkers following this alternative route down from the summit has resulted in an unsightly erosion scar. Funds raised through the campaign will enable the Park Authority to undertake the work of constructing a stone pitched path that will withstand the increasing pressure on this part of the mountain.
