Watch out for jets during the week...

Don'ts: 
  • Land around the farm on the East side of the ridge.
  • Land in areas of livestock.
  • Land South of the main road between Tryfan and Gallt yr Ogof.
  • Park at the bottom of the reservoir road.
  • Park obstructing any gate ways or tracks.
Challenges: 
  • Can be turbulent in moderate westerlies.
  • The Ogwen valley is in the track of low flying RAF jets Mon to Fri so best used on week ends only.
