Cycling in North Wales
Some people might say that Lon Eifion is the most well-known and well-used cycle route on the national cycle network. Certainly it is worth a visit, if only to feast your eyes on the breathtaking views. Indulge yourself in the blues and greens of the Llyn Peninsula to the south west, Caernarfon Bay and Anglesey to the west and north, and the impressive mountains of Snowdonia to the east.

Lon Eifion is a green avenue of trees and plants that stretches between the busy historical town of Caernarfon and the rural village of Bryncir to the south.

A combination of tarmac (Llanwnda - Graianog) and compacted dust surface has been provided along its 20 kilometre (12.5 mile) length.

Take the chance to wander off the path and explore local attractions such as Glynllifon Country Park, and the scenic Nantle Valley with its old quarries, from where you can view the impressive mass of Snowdon.

Why not combine your visit with a trip on the narrow guage Welsh Highland Railway, that runs parallel to Lon Eifion for 5km (3 miles) from Caernarfon to Dinas station?

Lon Eifion is part of Lon Las Cymru, route number 8 on the National Cycle Network.
