Lôn Eifion

Family Cycling

Lôn Eifion is one of the most scenic cycleways in North Wales. The views are quite spectacular; inland to the east there are the mountains of Snowdonia, while to the southwest the Lleyn Peninsula stretches away beyond the hill of Bwlch Mawr and across to the west the southern coast of Anglesey catches the eye.

The route starts in the historic town of Caernarfon and runs south for 20km to the small village of Bryncir. The cycleway is mostly level and has recently been upgraded with a high quality hard surface throughout. If the full 40km return trip sounds like too big an ask a shortened version can be done by switching back at the Inigo Jones museum and café – this gives a round trip of 16km. The cycleway can also be joined at various different points along the way to create a journey that best suits the day.
The impressive 13th century Caernarfon Castle dominates the architecture of the town – this impressive World Heritage site is well worth visiting if you have the time. For most of the first 5km from Caernarfon Lôn Eifion runs alongside Welsh Highland Railway line – if you are lucky you may see one of the trains passing

Approach:

Start from the Slate Key car park on the harbour in front of Caernarfon Castle. Cycle south eastwards along St Helen’s Road for 300m until it is possible to join the cycleway.
