WALKS & HIKES
Pembrokeshire is a special delight for those who enjoy the outdoors.
With miles of award-winning sandy beaches, many of which are dog friendly (check restrictions), all tastes are catered for, from simply soaking up the sun on a beautiful, sandy beach to enjoying a challenging hike with spectacular scenery. National Geographic says that Hiking in Wales is one of our best trips for 2020 and voted it second only to New Zealand for its majestic beauty, saying: "Other British national parks include seaside areas but Pembrokeshire Coast is the only truly coastal park in the system - a realm of seacoast and sky stretching along the southwestern shoreline of Wales."
There are so many, many choices - and such varied options to choose from: riverside or trail, mountain or valley, including two walks from Trenewydd. Whether you are a dedicated hiker or would just like to go for a lovely stroll with some beautiful scenery, there is the perfect route for you.
The wild moorland of the Preseli Mountains can be seen from the top of the field at Trenewydd, and the ancient path of The Golden Road is easily accessible. The stones at Stonehenge are believed to have come from the quarries here, taken along a route that may be up to 5,000 years old. Foel Eryr, (the Place of the Eagle) just 18 minutes from Trenewydd, is the perfect place to start. Look out for buzzards and red kites, and the wild ponies wandering this raw grassland.
If you decide to go further afield, there is no need always to look out for circular walks, Seasonal coastal buses such as the Strumble Shuttle, Puffin Shuttle and Poppit Rocket operate on a ‘Hail and Ride’ basis - as long as you are in a safe place to stop, they'll pick you up. The Pembrokeshire County Council website has bus routes and timetables.
