An easy walk from the village of Wenvoe, 8 kilometres west of Cardiff. The walk route is mainly through agricultural land but includes a woodland and a small part of a golf course. It passes through the St. Lythans neolithic burial site with its prominent stone entrance and also alongside Dyffryn Gardens, well worth a visit if you have the time. In 1995 the route was improved by the local authority, is well waymarked and generally good underfoot.
