Rhymney Valley Ridgeway Walk
45 km / 28 miles
A route winding its way across the hills encircling the unique and often spectacular scenery of the Rhymney Valley. The walk follows quiet countryside paths and lanes, where steep beech woodlands merge into panoramic mountain tops. Mynydd Machen is the highest point. It links with the Taff-Ely Ridgeway Walk at Caerphilly Common, and in the east is partly coincident with the Sirhowy Valley Walk. The Northern Rhymney Valley Ridgeway Walk section (12 miles) links with the main circular walk at Gelligaer and finishes at Bute Town (SO104092), though there is a cycleway link to Bryn Bach Park that has visitor facilities.
