I was walking along the A499 Caernarfon to Clynnog Fawr road after my adventures in Llandwrog. This is a very lengthy tarmac stretch between Llandwrog and Clynnog Fawr. The actual path is along a cycle track, so you are not at risk of being run over, but traffic goes at a frightening and noisy pace, and it was with some relief that I got to Pontllyfni and headed for the coast for a small loop that takes you back to the road at Aberdesach. This is only a 1.5km stretch but it was welcome nevertheless.
|The Rivals look better and better the closer you get. The name "The Rivals" is an Anglicisation of "Yr Eifl" which is a Welsh word for a fork or trident. You can clearly see the three distinct peaks of the trident on the right of the photo above.|
|There is a good path along the coast from Pontllyfni and it is kept cut.|
|There is a good bridge across the Desach.|
|The path is above the shingle and easy to walk.|
