danravenellison added Pondra three, a new walk from Pontprennau to Draethen

Walk this route

I found this a really interesting cross-section through Cardiff, going through suburbia, estates and inner-city housing. I loved the massive heron mural on Plasnewydd Road and all the international restaurants when leaving Cardiff's city centre. The route could have been drawn a little better where it starts in Pontprennau, but I'm sure you'll manage it!...

OK, so I'm going to review this route as "maybe" good enough to be in the Slow Ways network because of an access issue.....

This is a great Slow Way route that I thoroughly enjoyed walking. I've shared it to deal with a couple of access/accuracy issues with Pondra Two. I'd 100% walk it again!...

A pleasant and easy walk through residential areas between the city centre and outskirts to the east. Alwyas pavements when at the side of the road. a perfectly good route....

It is easy to go around this roundabout with care and then continue north following the footpath and private road through the gated community, Staying on the footpath you rejoin the route at the Nant Fawr stream ST 22537 84395....

Walk this route

Most of this route is fine but there are access issues at: 1) Pontprennau - the footpath alongside the A4232 is no longer in use 2) Around Home Farm - better to stay on the road/track...

Walk this route

This route is fairly easy to navigate: paved paths through parks in Newport and well-marked footpaths. There’s a long stretch of quiet road SW of Bassaleg - I saw more cyclists and horse riders than cars. In Pontprennau, use the path around the side of B&Q....

Walk this route

This route is impossible because there's no access across the M4 at the point shown - the road that appears to cross the motorway is actually a dead-end either side. See Pondra2, a much better route....

My only moment of confusion was after leaving the paved road through Cefn Mably Country Park: the path heads NW along the edge of a field as far as a gate into a wooded area by a stream....

MaddyT added Caepon two, a new walk from Caerphilly to Pontprennau

Walk this route

This is a good route along clearly marked well-used paths through woods and grassy fields. However, there are a couple of potential hazards: 1) Just S of the M4 you need to jump/splash across the stream at Nant Glandulas. It was easy today but may be trickier after heavy rain. 2) Care is needed on the tiny stretch of St Mellons Rd between the footpath to Malthouse Farm and the start of the pavement: a few metres of narrow road, blind bends and oncoming traffic....
