Uniquely to many mountains, there are actually toilets at the summit of Snowdon but they’re only available when the Hafod Eryri visitor centre is open which is typically from late Spring until the last weekend in October but is closed on bad weather days. Always be sure you go before you start walking up the mountain! Fortunately there are public toilets are the start of each of the main Snowdon summit paths. Depending on which route up Snowdon you plan to tackle, you’ll find everything you need to know about Snowdon toilets right here.

Most toilets around Snowdon are managed by Snowdonia National Park and you’ll find more about them at

Llanberis Path

If you’re climbing Snowdon along the Llanberis Path then you’ll find toilets at the Snowdon Mountain Railway Station in Llanberis close to LL55 4TU or at¬†///catchers.restores.paving. These facilities are only open when the mountain railway is operating and don’t usually open until after 8.30am.

Alternate public toilets can be found a short five minute walk into Llanberis on Maes Padarn close to LL44 4SU or ///rehearsed.halt.stripped however their opening times can vary. Technically they shouldn’t open until 9am however they’re usually open from before 8am. These toilets are managed by Gwynedd Council so fire your complaints at them (we’ve no idea why they’re not available 24 hours a day).

Snowdon Ranger Path

On the west side of Snowdon on¬†the A4085, the Snowdon Ranger Path has a very small car park operated by Snowdonia National Park Authority. You’ll find it opposite the YHA Snowdon Ranger Hostel near to LL54 7YS or ///tripling.vegetable.bells. The toilets here aren’t great but they’re better than anything you’ll find the rest of the day.

Pyg Track, Miners’ Track and Crib Goch

You’ll find nice toilets (with hot water!) outside the warden building at¬†the Pen-y-Pass car park at LL55 4NU or ///brush.ringers.recline. These facilities are open 24 hours a day all year round.

Rhyd Ddu Path

Just up the road from the Snowdon Ranger Path is the Rhyd Ddu path. It shares a car park with the Rhyd Ddu station on the Welsh Highland Railway but it’s rarely busy. Aim for¬†LL54 6TH or ///january.smuggled.united. There’s a nice, clean toilet block waiting for you there which¬†is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Watkin Path

The popular Watkin Path is served by the¬†Pont Bethania car park in Nant Gwynant. You’ll find it near to¬†LL55 4NR or ///evoked.eased.variously. Toilets here¬†are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Nant Peris Park and Ride

The small village of Nant Peris at the bottom of the Llanberis Pass sits in between Llanberis and Pen-y-Pass. Here you’ll find a large car park operated by Snowdonia National Park Authority near to LL55 4UF or ///websites.affirming.subtitle¬†where toilets are available. These facilities are open 24 hours a day during the main season which is typically from the 1st April or Easter holiday (whichever is earlier) until the end of October). They continue to be open weekends during the winter.
