If you’d like to enjoy the Welsh countryside and fresh air, then Cardiff and its surrounding area are well worth a visit. From Margam Country Park to the Machen Forge Trail, here are some of the most scenic walks to take in and around the Welsh capital.
A moderate loop walk through and around the quiet village of Machen, this route offers a peaceful getaway from the city. Outside of the picturesque village and woodland, the trail takes you into the industrial past of the area as you traverse closely to the old forge. Ending with amazing views across the valley, the walk is definitely one that calls for bringing your camera.
