This is a circular walk
Starting at Fforest Fawr, we will walk through woodland, past Castell Coch and cross the Taff before climbing the Garth. We will then climb Craig yr Allt and Twyn Garwa. After crossing Caerphilly Common, we will then walk through woodland back to Fforest Fawr. This is a joint walk with the Long Distance Walking Assocation - but the pace will be accommodating, and there will be 3 breaks, to make the most of the (hopefully!) spectacular views. Option of drinks in the Black Cock Inn at the end of the walk. Please note we will be setting off at 9am promptly.
