Yr Eifl Tre’r Ceiri – The Rivals 3 peak walk

Yr Eifl’s 3 peaks are called The Rivals in English, the last includes the magnificent hill fort Tre’r Ceir.
A stunning walk, with great views and history. Starting at the public car park you follow the obvious track taking in the the first peak on the left affording great views of the sea and coast. (GPX does not include this as unfortunatley it was in my rucksack left at the bottom of this peak!). From there you walk to the main peak Yr Eifl, the last section is a bit of a scramble, but so worth it at the summit. from this peak you walk down and back up to the third peak which houses the famous Tre’r Ceiri Hill Fort – a well preserved hill fort with both walls intact in places and many circular foundations of dwellings. From this peak you walk back to the start. A really worth while walk!

Aber Falls (Rhaeadr Fawr)

A beautiful walk taking in Aber Falls (Rhaeadr Fawr), just under 5 miles. The walk starts from the car park, then ascends on well defined paths for about 2 miles to the waterfall. Known as Aber Falls (Rhaeadr Fawr in Welsh) this is a spectacular waterfall, its formed from the Red River (Afon Goch) that plunges about 120 feet over an outcrop of igneous rock in in the Carneddau range. To make the walk more interesting we walked on a different route back, that takes in another waterfall, has wonderful scenic countryside, mountain vistas, with views of Anglesey, Puffin Island and the Menai Straights, before returning downhill to the car park.
