Help connect Treorchy

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 Treorchy’s Slow Ways.

However, the footpath leading into/out of Ton Pentre is totally overgrown. A man living next to it explained that the council cleared it 4 years ago after complaints from the Ramblers - and now it's overgrown again.
