Advice and information
The going can be steep and may be wet and slippery in places. Remember to wear suitable clothes and good shoes/boots and take food and drink with you and be prepared to get fit!
Always follow the Countryside Code. When you are walking on minor roads keep to the right and make use of verges whenever you can. It should be easy to follow the route using the guide. When walking the route try and look out for the Walk logo that will be situated on stiles, gates and posts along the route. Directional waymarks with arrows will assist you as to which direction to walk in once you are on a public right of way. We also recommend you refer to the OS Explorer Map 166 Rhondda and Merthyr Tydfil.
