Tired of winter mud, I planned a route that would avoid it. Of course, I was never going to succeed completely, but this walk came as near as I could get to it. It starts with a walk along the seafront, partly on firm grass or pebbles and then climbs to the village of Rhyd-y-Foel by very narrow, almost traffic-free, lanes. The limestone outcrops above the coast are traversed before tracks and paths through woodland drop gradually to the outskirts of the town. The route and indeed, the area, attracts few walkers, which I found to my liking whilst there has plenty of interest and attractive scenery all round.

Waymark 8 stile is on the left past house with Welsh flag flying. Once over the stile head straight up not to the left as the arrow shows as this is what we did and the path was non existent. Doubled back on ourselves and found very well defined path.

Fantastic instructions. Varied walk with initially on beach then lanes and finally through the woods. Hardly saw anyone. Alpacas still in field. This was a relatively mud free walk considering the rain wev'e had recently.
