Giant's Bite Circular Walk from Cefn Glas

Discover Giant's Bite Circular Walk from Cefn Glas

A circular walk via Pontygwaith and Quaker’s Yard can be made from Cefn Glas utilising the Taff and Trevithick Trails. The ridge leads to a possible cairn at the site of an old trig point. 

High above the A470 to the north of Quaker’s Yard, the Giant’s Bite is a dramatic gap in the skyline quarried from the ridge top at the former Cefn Glas mine and quarry. 

Fine views of the Taff and Cynon valleys are afforded from the summit ridge, while the line of the former Glamorganshire Canal is also discernible.
