Before you put on your boots and head out walking there
are a few things to consider - but don't let any of this
stop you. Not only is walking good for you and the
environment, on Llyn it allows you to explore far more than
can be touched on the roads and indeed allows you to
appreciate the true spirit of the area.

Always be prepared for all weathers. Just because it looks
nice when you are setting out, it doesn't necessarily mean
that the weather will remain fine for the whole duration of
your walk. Pack waterproofs, and especially if you have
light coloured skin, suntan lotion in case you start to feel
the sun start to burn.

The best snacks you can take on hikes are chocolate bars,
they give you a quick burst of energy. It is advisable to
have some carbohydrates before you walk, for example cereal.
Always carry plenty of water or another drink (not fizzy).
Make sure you take a small first aid kit with you, so that
you can cover cuts and other minor injuries.
Always try to walk in a group of 4 or more, 3 at the very
least. If four people go out on a walk, and one gets
injured, one person needs to stay with them and the other
two should go for help, ensuring at least one of them gets
to someone who can help.

If hill walking, boots with ankle supports are the best
thing you can wear, however, make sure you have broken them
in (got used to them), before you use them to go up a hill.
If you don't they are very likely to rub! (Very painful -
take it from someone who has learnt from experience!).
On longer walks always plan your route and let someone else
know where you are going. Use the route cards below to plan
a route. Use and OS map to get your information. Be safe!

You would only really use a route card if you are walking
out for a day or in areas where there are greater risks to
you than just a bit of mud!
So get out there and enjoy the fantastic walking that the
Llyn Peninsula offers!
