On leaving the town of Treherbert the footpath ascends Tynewydd Mountain and enters a forest. At this point the path crosses rough, bumpy ground and is basically a passage between trees. Look out for waterfalls falling off the slopes of the mountain.

The path reaches a trig point at a maximum height of 516m before descending through the forest to cross a stream running from the Lluest-wen Reservoir.

At this point the walk joins the Coed Morgannwg Trail. The trail provides excellent views of the Dare Valley Country Park as it begins the descent into Aberdare.
