The walk leads parallel with the edge of Red Wharf Bay, giving fine views of the bay, which get broader as you progress to the higher land. The weather in this part of Anglesey is often better than much of the nearby island and mainland. The bay is often used as a sheltered location for ships going to and from Liverpool docks. Usually, several ships can be seen out to sea on a clear day. When the tide is out the sandy beach stretches a long way, away from the land. There are also pleasant walks along the beach from near the start.

The walk leads through some rough ground which can be wet at any time of year, so wear appropriate footwear.

The start is down the hill from Wern y Wylan, perhaps nearer Wern Farm.

The first part of the walk was lovely with stunning views of Red Wharf Bay. It was rather muddy in places so walking boots are best worn. At waypoint 10, it was not possible to take the track due to forestry work which meant taking the forestry track instead. This combined with the return along the road back to the start point made it a little tedious. We felt the walk would have been much more enjoyable done in reverse, saving the lovely views for last.
