Sirhowy Valley Ridgeway Walk
42 km / 26 miles
Blaenau G, Caerphilly, Newport
A challenging route from the built-up fringes of Newport to the mountain ridges of Mynydd Machen and Mynydd Manmoel. It passes lowland and upland farms, woodlands and riverside parks, many sites of historical interest, including an Iron Age hill fort, an old mill and a canal centre, before finishing near Tredegar. The Walk links with the waymarked Ebbw Valley Walk (16 miles from Wattsville to Ebbw Vale and on OS mapping) near Cwm. The circular waymarked Raven Walk (12 miles and included on OS mapping) uses some of the Sirhowy Valley Walk near Ynysddu.
