Holyhead Mountain 220m
This is a great little peak and the furthest north in Wales. From the Country Club car park walk along a distinct trail north (500m) and then west (1km), this is the welsh coast path route. Along here somewhere you will see a small stone built building that was apparently used to keep explosives for the nearby quarry. Keep going past this building and then you will turn South and after about another km you turn inland SE on a separate trail heading uphill over a false summit to the obvious trig point that you can see about 500m ahead of you. Here is the obvious trig point along with a foundation remains of a roman tower. From the summit there is a myriad of trails off there, some are not marked on the map. We headed East and down for a km until we hit an obvious road that took us back to the car park.
Parking and access: Get to Holyhead over the causeway and find the Breakwater Country Park, which funny enough is past the apparently 2km long breakwater to Holyhead port. Parking here is £2 and there is a cafe and toilets.
Route Summary: We hiked on yet another Welsh drizzly weather day otherwise this would have been a nice hike with nice views. Good paths and trails, plenty of options to add a bit of distance on to your route.
Route Statistics: 4km. 1hr 30m (yes yes we took our time and were dodging about 150 ultra athletes in tight crotch hugging tights!) with 242m of height gain.
