Best view of Mt Snowden

Hi, I'll be in North Wales next month. Where is the place to get a view of Mt Snowden without having to climb up the mountain? We'll be in the national park and driving from Betwsy-Coed to Carnaeforn. Wondering if there's a place enroute for a good view.
Thanks very much!

A498 - Snowdon Look out car park. Click here & you should get a Google Map of the location - then zoom out to see where it is.
Note that this is just south of your direct route to Caernarfon - which would be over the Llanberis Pass. The longer southerly route via Beddgelert is also very scenic and offers views of Snowdon from the south.

Hi, yes, James. I know about the railway up the mountain.
The train will not be going to the summit on the date I'm there. Hence, looking for nice views from the ground. 😀
