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.

This is a lovely route between Llantrisant and Cardiff, mainly on footpaths through fields and woodland, with the final section following the Taff Trail down the river to Cardiff. After leaving Llantrisant and crossing the A473, the route follows the Penrhys Pilgrimage Way as far as Pentyrch so those signs are helpful (see pictures). Just after leaving Creigiau, the footpath sign off the road on the left is quite obscured (I missed it first time!) - go past the house on the right hand side of the road and then look for the sign and gate on your left (see pictures). If walking in the other direction (from Cardiff), the footpath to leave Pentyrch comes off the road just before the school playground/school building.
