Ramblers Boost Island Walk Routes
by Andria Massey
The Ramblers Group on Anglesey has recently opened a number of new footpaths for keen walkers. Some paths have not been open for many years, so this repair and renovation work is very welcome.
Here are a few of the walks which are now accessible:
Penysarn GR SH460 899
Walk down the track off the A5025 and follow the footpath signs towards the Parys Mountain paths. There are ladder sites to negotiate so this path is not ideal for people who have difficulty in climbing.
Near Llansadwrn GR SH549 774
Take the footpath off the B5109 Pentraeth to Beaumaris Road and head towards Plas Trefor. Before reaching this property, take the footpath signed on the left hand side and head towards Pentraeth Forest.
This was a very muddy walk but it is now possible to walk to the forest along wooden boardwalks and is suitable for both able and less able walkers. This route links well with the forest paths and through to the foreshore at Red Wharf Bay.
Amlwch/Burwen GR SH431 927 to SH414 922
Take the footpath off the B5111 Burwen Road at the side of the Cemetery and follow the signs across the country past Trogog Isaf to Pen Parc Mawr, then follow the road towards Burwen and pick up the next path on the right hand side (SH 415 926) to make a circular walk back to Amlwch.
This is a very nice walk on the level with kissing gates in the main so is suitable for both able and less able.
Talwrn GR SH489 772 to SH494 780
Two old stone stiles and a ladder stile have been taken down and replaced with wide metal kissing gates which are much more suitable for dog walkers and less able people.
Please note, however, that the path crosses farm land so it will be necessary for dogs to be kept on a lead as sheep and cattle can be grazing the fields.
The intention is to link this path through the Cors Bodeilio Nature Reserve but currently the path leads to the Pentraeth to Talwrn road.
If you are happy to walk along this road for a short distance turn right and walk approximately 100m to pick up another path signed on the left.
Take the path to make a circular route back into Talwrn. We hope you enjoy yourselves on these new Anglesey walks.
