Rail ramble - Llandaff to Lisvane
Saturday, 7 March 2020
Start time: 9:30
(Estimated finish time: 15:00)
Moderate 7.5 miles / 12.1 km
part of the Cambrian Way - starting at Llandaff Station onto Melingriffith works and past Forest Farm. We then pick up a short section of the Taff Trail to Tongwynlais and up to Castell Coch, through Forest Fawr and onto a bridleway to the golf course. The last section picks up the Ridgeway Walk and then down through woodland to Cefn Onn park and a well earned drink at The Cottage and return to Cardiff from Lisvane / Thornhill station. This walk takes us along some beautiful parts of Cardiff's rivers, canals, castles and countryside. It is mostly easy walking with a couple of steep sections. We will be going a steady pace so suitable for slower walkers. Dogs welcome but be aware some section will be busy with cyclistsand so they need to be under control and the last section has sheep so they will need to be on a lead.
The walk will start from Llandaff station. Please note there is only one start point - there will not be a Pontcanna Fields meet point.
