Join Outdoor Lads for a fantastic Saturday walk from Merthyr along the Taff Trail to Pontypridd .

The walk will start at Merthyr Railway Station and finish in the town Centre of Pontypirdd.

This walk is designed for those without a car and the start and finish is a railway station with plentiful access from other areas. There's also parking at both stations if anyone is driving. 

We will meet on the platform at Merthyr Railway Station at 11.00am and finish around 3:30/4pm depending on our speed in Pontypridd Town Centre. We will stop for lunch on the route. Please note the new start time of 11am

The railway station is around an hour north of Cardiff and there are two trains per hour trains throughout the monring. A day singe costs £5.40 and return costs £8.70. There are then frequent trains (6 per hour) from Pontypridd back to Cardiff

The route is around 13miles/20km the first and last bits are in an urban area and the bulk of the rest of the walk is on a purpose built path/track although mud will almost be guaranteed.

For more info on the route see here (our route will take a slightly shorter route)

There is a second part to this route (Pontypridd to Cardiff) in March. There is no obligation to do both parts.
