Traffic Free Lon Eifion Cycle Route and Welsh Highland Railway. The Lon Eifion cycle route from Caernarfon to Bryncir is 12 miles long and traffic free, which adds up to a total distance of 24 miles for the return journey.

If this might be too far for your liking, you have the alternative of taking a lift on the Welsh Highland Railway from Caernarfon to Rhydd Ddu station, at the base of Snowdon, for the outward journey.

You can take your bikes (for free) and return via the picturesque Nantlle Valley to Penygroes from where you connect up with the Lon Eifion cycle route and return on a slight downhill incline to Caernarfon.

The alternative route however has the disadvantage of sharing the road with traffic in the Nantlle Valley from Rhyd Ddu to Penygroes, unlike the traffic free Lon Eifion official route.

The route passes the villages of Bont Newydd, Dinas, Llanwnda, Groeslon, Penygroes, and Llanllyfni en-route to Bryncir, and the 500 feet of climb delivers fine views of the Snowdonia Mountains and the North Lleyn coastline.

Should you arrive at Caernarfon Castle without your bike but fancy a ride along the trail then you can hire a bike from the Beics Menai bike shop situated alongside the harbour and car park adjacent to the castle.
