Old gate on the riverside path.
The Afon Dwyfor is the largest river on the
peninsula and flows down from the western slopes of
Snowdonia, through Llanystumdwy and then out into
Tremadog Bay. The wooded mile or so upstream from
Llanystumdwy is very picturesque, particularly in
the autumn when the leaves are changing colour. Most
of the walk is fairly level and is suitable for all
abilities, but beware of the odd tree root and
uneven parts of the path made up with rocks.
From the bridge in the centre of the village,
head up the small lane upstream on the opposite side
of the river to the church, and there are openings
in the wall on the side of the road which lead past
a Lloyd George memorial down to the riverside. Walk
upstream alongside the river as far as you like and
you can turn around and come back. If you would like
to do a round trip, take a turn when you see a clear
path off to your right which goes through a wall and
on to a country lane. If you walk up the river to a
road bridge, you have gone too far! But not too far,
so if you turn around you should soon find the path
on your left.
Once you get onto the country lane, turn right down
an initial long straight stretch, then through a
farm and around some bends, eventually you will get
to a T junction, where you need to again, turn
right. You will soon find yourself back in the
village at the start.
There is nice tea-shop in the village to finish
off your walk!
