Stroll - Treborth Coastal/Forest Path, Menai Strait


Route: Starting at the entrance to Treborth Botanic Gardens, the route runs along the forest/coastal path beside the Menai Strait. It's imporant not to disturb the Red Squirrels, so the first section is best done with dogs on leads through the woodlands.

There are some great views across the strait. The route passes under the Britannia Bridge ramparts and continues on to the edge of Vaynol Estate, and then returns.

It is also possible to take an optional return route through the Treboth Botanical Gardens

Nearest public transport is the set of bus stops outside the Antelope Inn, on the Menai Bridge approach.

Obstacles: The (optional) short concrete roadway which leads down to the whatr below the Britannia Bridge can be slippery with green algal slime when wet.

Directions: Turn off the A5 besides the Antelope Inn, right on the mainland end of the old Menai Bridge rampart. This lane runs through the woodland and onward through Treborth Business Park. It reaches a small set of parking spaces just before Treborth Botanic Gardens

Parking: Several public parking bays within the entrance to Treborth Botanical Gardens. Additional roadside parking on the lane leading from Menai Bridge to the Botanical Gardens.

Facilities: Treborth Botanical Gardens are freely open for public access (dogs on leads).
