The Taff Trail is a multi-purpose route between the Cardiff waterfront at Cardiff Bay in the south and the Market town of Brecon in the North. 88km in length, the trail passes close to Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil, through a wide variety of urban, suburban landscapes and the open moorland of the Brecon Beacons.
A large proportion of the Taff Trial is designated as traffic free, which has been achieved by using the routes of former tramways, railways, canals and present day canal towpaths, including the original rights of way embankments, cuttings and viaducts. Many of these routes have important historical significance to the industrial heritage of South Wales. The Taff Trail is used by walkers and cyclists for trips of varying length throughout the year. Parts are also suitable for horse-riders.
