Llyn Peninsula Criccieth

Caernarfon, Wales, United Kingdom

Hilly - New - Trending

Starting at the small pier at Trefor on the northern shores of the Llyn Peninsula, we soon hit the slopes of Yr Eifl (the ‘Rivals’ in English) which surprisingly is not on the official list of the UK National Hill Climbs and with 17% gradients is a beautiful climb where at the top you find yourself amongst heather in flower and spectacular views looking along the entire Lyn Peninsula as you descend through Llithfaen, Pistyll and onto Nefyn where we then head along minor lanes overland with glimpses of the Snowdonia Hills in the distance to finish overlooking the castle at Criccieth and Cardigan Bay.
