Trek Notes - Wales



Pembrokeshire Coast Path

General Information
This magnificent trail between the villages of St Dogmael's in the north and Amroth in the south follows the coastline of the Pembrokeshire National Park through some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Britain. For much of the time the path keeps to the clifftops, providing superb views of the cliffs, beaches and offshore stacks and islands with their abundant birdlife. Each turn in the path reveals something different - a little harbor, an attractive village, a Neolithic cromlech, Bronze Age standing stones, Iron Age promontory forts, a church or chapel of the Celtic saints and their followers or a castle built by Norman invaders.
