Bwlch y Ddeufaen

OS Grid Ref:-SH 716717

The pass of Ddeufaen, south of the town of Penmaenwawr, is very steep and the scenery at the end of the pass superb, wild and majestic moorland with rocky slopes and acres of gorse which provide a blaze of yellow in spring.

At its peak, the pass offers some excellent views which stretch as far as the Isle of Anglesey. The pass is marked by two superb standing stones. There are two smaller uprights close to the northern stone, and a series of small stones emerging from the peat a short distance east of the southern stone. The Standing Stones are around 2,000 years old and rise to a height of around ten feet.


The narrow road ends in a small turning space but a track continues along the course of the old Roman road which linked Canovium fort with the military settlement of Segontium, near Caernarfon.
