If you like walking, or you just want to see a bit more of the beauty of Merthyr, going for a stroll on one of Merthyr's trails is a good way to see all that Merthyr has to offer.

With over 200 rights of way in Merthyr Tydfil, bridleways, and the more established tracks and trails on which you can ride your bike, you can tailor your day out to suit yourself!

Whether you wish to cycle the Taff Trail, or take a leisurely walk along the Celtic trail, stopping off for refreshments along the way, we have trails to suit all tastes, and lets not forget the Trevithick Trail - following the line of the first steam locomotive to pull a load on rails in 1804. No matter where these trails take you, you will find a wealth of wildlife and history at your fingertips, and the pubs and cafes en route will provide that friendly welcome which is a signature to any visit to Merthyr Tydfil!

Please note that the map marker on the above map is situated on the Taff Trail, near the Cyfarthfa Ironworks.  We are currently working on an interactive mapping system, which will incorporate downloadable trails and inform a phone application which will enable you to walk Merthyrs trails, be informed about places of interest, and learn something of the geology, nature and heritage of the area (as well as where to stop for refreshments on the way!).
