Summary: The Taff Ely Ridgeway Walk (Ffordd y Bryniau) is a high level footpath in south Wales. The walk which covers a mixture of footpaths, bridleways and lanes follows the crest of a line of hills running from Mynydd Maendy in the west, to Caerphilly Common in the east. The route passes through forests taking in ancient hill forts. There are links with the Rhymney Valley Ridgeway Walk at Caerphilly Common, the Taff Trail near to Taffs Well and the waymarked Ogwr Ridgeway Walk at the start, which joins the Coed Morgannwg Way. From the beginning of the walk at the roadside car park near Mynydd Maendy the route which tracks in a rough line from west to east involves Mynydd Hugh, Mynydd Portref, Mynydd Meiros, Mynydd Garthmaelwg, Talbot Green, Llantrisant, Gwern-y-Moel Uchaf, Craig Gwilym, Garth Hill, Taff Vale (Cwm Taf), Craig yr Allt and Caerphilly Common.
