*** NEW WALK ***

6.5 Mile Circular (ascent and descent) Walk

Barry Sidings Country Park

Trehafod, Rhondda Cynon Taf

Sunday 4th November

Join us on our first exploration of this hidden gem near Pontypridd which covers acres of stunning woodland, panoramic mountain views and poignant reminders of Wales' bygone industrial past. Starting from the car park at Barry Sidings we'll take a long, continuous ascent through woodland where the upward gradient is mostly gradual with a couple more challenging short sections. At the summit we'll find local coal mining history quite literally at our feet - from the grass and foliage-covered slag heap we'll be standing upon to the fine panoramic views before us over the once thriving mining community, with its majestic colliery now motionless and rusted, visible below. Our descent will be steep at first before settling into a more gentle and gradual gradient as our route returns to the Park where the Cafe will be available for refreshments.

DATE: Sunday 4th November

TIME : 9.15 meet for 9.30 start

START POINT : Barry Sidings Countryside Park, Trehafod, Nr Pontypridd, CF37 2PE

DIRECTIONS : From M4 Jct 32 take the A470 toward Merthyr. Taking the 5th Jct off A470 (sign-posted Pontypridd/ Rhondda Heritage Park) follow the 'Rhondda Valley' signs through Pontypridd town to Hopkinstown (Trehopcyn). Stay on this road keeping your eyes peeled for the brown 'Barry Sidings' sign. The turning is on your left over a narrow metal river bridge and easy to miss (if you reach Trehafod and Rhondda Heritage Park you've gone too far)

DURATION : 3 - 3.5 HRS (approx)

TERRAIN: Forest paths, woodland, field boundary, elevated slag heap area KIT : sturdy walking boots, comfortable weather-appropriate clothing, hat & gloves, drink & snack, walking poles (recommended - some spares available)
