National Route 566 of the National Cycle Network will run from Llanddeusant, where it will join Route 5, to Newborough via Amlwch, Llangefni and Malltraeth.

The northern section, locally known as Lôn Las Copr, or the Copper Trail, is open for a tour around Anglesey’s north coast. It offers spectacular sea views and a journey through a millennium or two of Anglesey history. The route travels past Cemlyn Nature Reserve, which includes a large lagoon, separated from the sea by a spectacular, naturally-created shingle ridge. This reserve is home to a wealth of birds, wildflowers and marine creatures making it a delightful place to visit all year round.

Stop off at Swtan, the island’s last surviving thatched cottage. Llynnon Mill, the only working windmill in Wales and the “Copper Kingdom” at Parys Mountain and Amlwch port that gives the trail its name.

The southern section, which follows Lôn Las Cefni is due to be signed as part of the National Cycle Network very soon.
