Approximate time – 2 hours

StartRhyslyn or Gyfylchi car park

The highlights of this historical trail are the spectacular views of the Afan Valley and Pontrhydyfen, a village renowned for its many river crossings so vital in its industrial heyday in the 19th century.

From Rhyslyn car park this trail starts level on the forest road and is level along the hilltop, but there is a steep 180 metre (600 feet) climb up a stone track to the top and a steep descent back down.
