Walking Trails in Rhondda Cynon Taf

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and associated Welsh Government restrictions, some facilities may be closed, or operating in a manner that is different from usual to ensure safety. Please check in advance.
Our views will take your breath away... for all the right reasons, of course!

Our landscape has been shaped over millions of years by nature and industry. Reclaimed by Mother Nature, our outdoor spaces are EPIC - and there is something for everyone...

Follow in the footsteps of Nick Hallisey (Country Walking Magazine) and embark on our Sgwyd Yr Eira trail - a route previously walked by “cattle-herders, silica miners, gunpowder monkeys – and fairies”, with a spectacular waterfall to boot. Take your canine companions on an adventure like our Ordinance Survey Get Outside Champion Tracy Purnell, put foot to peddle on the 55 mile Taff Trail, or enjoy a gentle stroll or ride at Barry Sidings Countryside Park.
