Follow one of the heritage trails along an old railway track, down to Cwmavon and back up to the moorland and the car park. This walk is best in August when the heather is in full bloom. The views are good all the year round. The walk takes in part of re-claimed coal tips and then part of heritage trails. Blaenavon is now been given the status of World Heritage Site and there is plenty to see in the area.

We walked the problem part of this walk this morning. There were a few places where wild raspberries were a problem and we cleared the path. I judge the route to be walkable, bearing in mind that it is high summer and plants do grow. There are also some wet places but this all goes with walking on mountains. We made it a circular walk and enjoyed it, the high ground is purple with heather and we saw plenty of bird life.
