Overview

Linear walk.

Claire Happy to lead a walk (9? Miles)  BUT  suggest starting the walk an hour later. 

Cardiff Central 10.16 (Rhymney train) to Hengoed (10.52)  – buy return ticket (can use bus pass for one third off price)

Claire will get on at Heath High Level (10.25) 

The  walk will do the 3 mile Gren’s Way before heading off to Penallta and towards Nelson before returning to Ystrad Mynach -  miss out Llancaiach Fawr as the RVR from Penallta will be extremely muddy and wet.  Maybe stop at Colliers café on the return! 

Intention to join walk helpful - contact Walk Leader Claire E. 029 2075 6493.
