Walking Trail 6 – Pontypridd to Bwlch Mountain

A challenging series of climbs through the industrial South Wales valleys – 17.5km in total.

The walk starts in Pontypridd and follows a cycle trail to the town of Porth where it follows a footpath up through the local golf course to the shrine of Our Lady at Penrhys. It then descends to the Rhondda Fawr and winds through Ton Pentre before picking up a public footpath that climbs steeply to the top of the Bwlch Mountain.
