Llyn Peninsula Criccieth

Caernarfon, Wales, United Kingdom

Hilly

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) with its 17% gradients. It is a beautiful climb and at the top you find yourself amongst heather in flower and spectacular views looking along the entire Lyn Peninsula. Descend through Llithfaen, Pistyll and onto Nefyn, then head along minor lanes with glimpses of the Snowdonia Hills in the distance, to finish overlooking Criccieth castle on the edge of Cardigan Bay.
