I live in the beautiful village of Gwaelod y Garth, just outside Wales’ capital city, Cardiff. I’m an experienced, qualified hill-walker, and I love sharing what I know about the nature and the folklore of “Cardiff’s last wilderness”.

Where you'll be

Our route is flexible, to suit your mood and energy-level. We’ll start in the village, then it’s up through peaceful woodland, studded with signs of its mining heritage, to Mynydd y Garth. We can take a path to the summit, to find prehistoric burial mounds, a pillar with a story, and wonderful views. On the way back down, you can choose to continue on paths through the woods, or go through the village with its old miners’ cottages and pub.
