Connect Neath with Slow Ways
We’re creating a network of walking routes that connect all of Britain’s towns, cities and national parks
more walks and reviews are needed to fully connect Neath to the verified network. Can you give a hike and help?Give a hike!
Slow Ways linking Neath and Crynant, Maesteg, Pontardawe, Port Talbot, Swansea
Great Britain / West Glamorgan / Neath
Neath’s five Slow Ways are 40% checked
Help connect Neath
Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.
Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.
Give a hike and help get a for every one of Neath’s Slow Ways.

Then shortly after, turn L onto a by-way, which is used extensively by 4x4 vehicles, so although dry(ish), very rutted, rocky narrow track. After turning L, down towards Crynant, following the St Illtyds Walk, found I lost the marked route, but may have been me!...
Only one unpaved section, along the canal from Jersey Marine to Port Tenant and you could follow the route of the cycle path alongside the main road as an alternative if needed....
Significantly slower starting at the Port Talbort end because it climbs right up Mynydd Dinas to the national coast path along the top - there are other paths lower down along the side of the hill which all meet up.
