Summary: The Coed Morgannwg Way crosses part of the Coed Morgannwg, a complex of four upland forests visiting the Dare Valley and Craig y Llyn, climbing to several more viewpoints, to reach Afan Argoed Country Park. From here the route follows less elevated paths past a number of archaeological remains from prehistoric to industrial times. Near to Bodvic Stone the Way links with the Ogwr Ridgeway Walk. See St Illtyd's Walk. The Way is a dramatic walk of 36 miles which follows ancient tracks of Celtic origin and passes close by a number of Bronze and Iron Age settlements. Along the route there are several good viewpoints, from which you can see the Brecon Beacons and the Bristol Channel. The highest of these is Craig y Llyn which is 1,968 feet (600 metres) above sea level. (Source: LDWA)
