Aber Valley Heritage Trail
Distance (miles)6
Overview

'The Aber Valley, which was originally part of Glamorgan, but now in its post-mining era is part of the County Borough of Caerphilly, is made up of Abertridwr village and the more northerly village of Senghenydd both original mining communities with an extensive history of events that made the Valley what it is today.

Rhymney Valley Riverside Walk
Distance (miles)32
Overview

'Linear walk which winds along the floor of the Rhymney Valley, following the river from its headwaters to the southern plains. There are many bus and train stops along the route – so it need not be walked in a single outing. The walk forms part of the Valleys Regional Park, a network of visitor facilities and accessible countryside activity routes across the Valleys.'
