  • TerrainOne incline and one dog friendly stile, we use twice.

This is a lovely walk in a little known area.

It is mainly easy walking with one incline towards the end, back into the golf course.

The walk starts in Ffos Las woodland, a young woodland bursting into life, planted on the slopes of the Gwendraeth Valley as a memorial to lives lost in the First World War.

We will visit Yr Arwr (Hero), the war horse sculpture - see photo - at the end of the walk.

From the woodland we take a path around the golf course.

From there we descend onto an old interesting tramway, with old canal and quay, heading towards Pontyates where we will have a lunch stop.

Then there is a short walk by the road before making our way back to the golf course and back to the start.

There is a cafe a very short drive away for refreshments at the end.
