Description

I'm offering an alternative route Pontypridd to Church Village which is less pretty but easier underfoot. There is a section on tarmac through Trefforest and this offers opportunities to visit shops and cafés. The ascent south of the University of South Wales is on a path that is mostly firm throughout the year. The road section after this is generally very quiet with almost no traffic

Surveys

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 an easy route, mostly along paved surfaces. The nicest part is the lane running north of Church Village and the footpath connecting it with Treforest. There are signs informing walkers about the views to Pen y Fan and Somerset (not today though).
