Parked in small lay bye at road junction south of the property Nant. Then followed coastal path to Penarfynydd Farm and up onto Mynydd to the trig point.

Across cattle pasture and steeply up from end of minor road to NE, probably best from the sewerage plant though. Pillar has lost its top cap, replaced by an asphalt plug; rear sight hole open. Fine panoramic views.

Claimed this during our week on the penisula. Great sea views from here and is situated on the coast path so good opportunities for further exploring.

Bagging YSM342 Mynydd Penarfynydd. My notes for this said "Parked just above sewage works on grass tuning area for short walk with good views" Great if you knew where the sewage works were! So we drove down to Penarfynydd farm which was actually only about 150m from the trigpoint and asked the farmer if we could get to the trigpoint from his farm (which did have a ROW through it!). Alas he said no and that we couldn't park as he had livestock? So we drove down the other fork to N52 48.541' W4 38.153' and found the elusive sewage works, then it was a short but steepish walk up to the trigpoint.

Parked near entrance to Penarfynydd. Walked through the farm and round the headland and up to the trig. Amazing views and saw some Choughs flying around. Went back via sewage farm and across two fields.

Parked on lane west of Chapel then into grave yard over wall and onto narrow path through gorse. Bagged 4 rocky tors on Bryn Tirion then continued onto Mynydd Penarfynydd with Paul Webster.

Bus from Llanbedrog to Aberdaron. Had to pay! Bus pass doesn't work in The Land of our Fathers. Lovely spring day with just a bit of mist spoiling distant view.

Parked on the lane to Penarfynydd just before it becomes a private road. Fine viewpoint.

Would never have believed I could get quite lost and disorientated in mist here after just a 50m climb up a grassy bank and return straight down what I thought felt like the fourth side of a rectangle. Stupidly left map and compass in the car. Seriously lost for about 30-40 mins. Had to reverse my direction twice and quite amazed and a little bit freaked out by how easy it was. Clear now that it was not simply three sides of a rectangle that I'd walked and if been trying to come down the other side of the ridge and was walking east and south towards cliffs instead of west North west to my car. Unnerving for a while

A shame about the periodic frets rolling in and the whiff from passing the sewage treatment works. The Welsh Black heffers were something to occupy the attention during the gentle ascent and descent from the ridge

Asphalt plug. Public. National Trust. AONB. Headland south of Rhiw village. Trig right on Lleyn Peninsula Coastal Path. Superb coastal walking above Hell's Mouth.

Circular walk from Mynydd Rhiw. Excellent ridge running down to Trwyn Talfarach. Good views. A pity that many of the local paths are so overgrown with bracken around Rhiw.

We parked near the track leading to Penarfynydd (SH217268) - room for one car. Pleasant walk across the fields then a pull up onto the headland. Plenty of ravens and Shane heard a curlew. Good views. Tarmac plug.

Nice location, though not a spectacular as Rhiw just to the north. With a Tar Plug.
