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.

July 2022. Direction: Treharris to Mountain Ash

This is a straight forward walk in the Taff Bargoed, Taff and Cynon valleys, mostly following cycle tracks, mainly the Taff and the Cynon Trails (national cycle routes 8 and 478). Most of it is along one of the above rivers, with just occasional diversions. The surface is tarmac most of the way, so it`s also a good route for wheeling, albeit with a small detour at Abercynon (see below).

There are some pleasant riverside walks, as you would expect with these trails. The trails are sometimes on minor roads, but there was hardly any traffic on them at the time of my walk around mid-day on a week day. However, you`re never far from a main road and you can hear the traffic on them most of the way along the walk - the only reason I didn`t give this 5-stars. There`s also a nice meadow walk at Abercynon after leaving the B4275 road and joining the footpath.

For wheelchair users, instead of taking the footpath before crossing the B4275 river bridge at Abercynon, an easier path would be to continue over the river bridge and turn right along River Row, which leads on to Park Row, then go through the leisure centre car park and cross the foot bridge back over the river to re-join the path.
