Llantrisant and Graig Commons Walk


Suitability - Walkers - Short Distance


Located in Llantrisant, one of the oldest towns in South Wales the trail explores the biodiversity of the town’s historic Llantrisant and Graig Commons.

Departing from Llantrisant Town, the walk crosses a mixture of marshy grassland and drier pastures which is home to a diverse range of wildlife and grazed daily by a herd of cattle and horses. On a clear day, you'll be able to see views across to the Vale and Bristol Channel to Exmoor from the Graig Common.

This 5.7km circular walk is not way-marked and will need to be undertaken with the accompaniment of the route map, where you'll find information on the botany and biodiversity of the commons.

The walk is mainly on countryside footpaths with some steep hills and muggy terrain in places, which may make it wet underfoot (walking boots are advised). Please note the route is not way-marked.
