We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

A little care should be taken on the roads at Quakers Yard, but otherwise this is a pleasant, flawless slow way.

August 2022. Direction: Treharris to Abercynon.

An easy walk in the Taff Bargoed and Taff valleys, although the first section is quite steep going down the zig-zag path from Treharris to the Taff Bargoed river. Most of the way, it`s cycle track, so a tarmac surface, and follows the two rivers.

At the time of my walk, there were major works being carried out near Abercynon station car park and the path after going over the footbridge to the station was blocked. Alternatives are the "snicket" path leading back to the B4275, going under the bridge and then left down Station Road, or simply continuing on the Taff Trail a little further and taking the road bridge into the station car park.

Most of this route is common with the first part of the Treharris to Mountain Ash route (Moutre1) - it`s only the last couple of hundred metres that differ.

This is an easy route, mostly following the Taff Trail (good for cycling). There are a few steps on the path linking Treharris with the bridge over the river at the bottom of the hill, but these could easily be avoided.
