Abercregan - Coed Morgannwg Way - Pontrhydyfen

This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.

From the old mining village of Abercregan, follow the Coed Morgannwg Way to Efail Fach, returning along old railway lines in the Afan Valley. The industrial scars of this area have healed, leaving views of green valleys and rolling hills with masses of flowers, butterflies and birds.

The Colliers at Pontrhydyfen is a good place to refuel (www.thecolliers.biz).

Great walk but there have been some changes in the area due to clear felling of trees in an effort to prevent the spread of larch disease. The overgrown area mentioned in the notes for waypoint 3 is now open hillside. We were unable to follow the former footpath but there are now a number of new forest roadways and we found it easy to use these to climb to the 'wide gravel track'. Prior to this the climb through the woods mentioned in the notes to waypoint 2 is quite overgrown but can be followed with care. On a happier note the pub The Colliers Arms is now under new management and serves food every day.
