Lon Las Cefni: Anglesey is a wonderful route that takes you through some of Anglesey's most picturesque scenery.
Starting at the wonderfully located village of Malltraeth, in the southwest corner of the island, the route heads along Malltraeth Marsh to Pont Marquis where the traffic-free path starts.
The route crosses the disused Amlwch Branch railway line before heading into Llangefni alongside the River Cefni. There are plenty of places to eat and fill up on supplies in this old market town before continuing the ride northwards.
The route leads you into the local nature reserve known as The Dingle which has additional boardwalks and sculptures to enhance the journey. Passing under the Amlwch Branch line you then ride above the River Cefni on an impressive boardwalk before you reach the shores of Llyn Cefni, a reservoir and local nature reserve.
At the dam of the reservoir you can cycle eastwards to link up to Route 5 or head west to finish at the village of Bodffordd.
From Malltraeth it is possible to travel in the opposite direction across Malltraeth Cob to Newborough Forest. Lon Las Cefni runs on a dust track through the forest, which is famous for its red squirrel population, to the village of Newborough. Or you can park your bike and head to the beach at Newborough Sands.
