Penmachno

A really nice walk from the village of Penmachno walking around Moel Pen-Y-Bryn mountain. A fairly easy walk as only one steep uphill section, and only just over 7 miles long. The walk starts in the village and has varied terrains from tracks, forest paths, open fields, farm tracks and a bit of lane. It can be a bit boggy in sections so take the right gear. It has great views of the valley, rivers and hills. Unfortunately we chose a very wet day for it, but the weather in this area can be varied, so be prepared!

Park and start the Walk in the village we parked near N 53.03952 W -3.80578

Newborough Forest

A lovely walk in south west Anglesey, good forest tracks with stunning sea and Snowdonia views near the end, in the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve. At just over 8 miles the walk is easy as fairly flat. Starting at the car park you follow the forest tracks going around the forest in a big horseshoe, near the end you hit the beach and head out onto a peninsula called Llanddwyn Island (Ynys Llanddwyn). Great Snowdonia vistas and a historic site – The church of St. Dwynwen (the Welsh patron saint of lovers), after this you head back to the forest for the last section of the walk.

Park and start the Walk at the public Car N 53.144106 W -4.385195
