This is another circular walk along the waymarked Sirhowy Valley Walk. From Tredegar Park, National Cycle Route 4 is followed as far as the ancient parish church of Bassaleg. Near here, a little-known path along the edge of the Bassaleg Estate is joined, which takes the walker through woods and fields above (but never far from) the Ebbw River.

Near Rhiwderin, the Sirhowy Valley Walk is joined for the remainder of the route. After crossing the Ebbw into Ty Du Welfare Grounds, the route climbs through Rogerstone to the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal. A stretch of towpath walking (including a descent of the canal's well-known fourteen locks) is followed by a stiff climb through fields to Ridgeway.

A short section along suburban streets leads to Coed Melyn Park and then a short steep climb up the slopes of Tredegar Fort, Gaer, for the best views of the day. From here, it's downhill all the way to your starting point at Tredegar Park.
