Details

The Tan y Coed Picnic site is located amongst beech woods and is the starting point for two woodland and riverside walks along the stream of Cwm Cadian. For families, there is an animal puzzle trail and a free leaflet is available on site.

Cwm Cadian Trail (1 mile, 1.6 kilometres).
This moderate walk passes through a beech woodland and alongside the river Cadian with its waterfall and pools.

Animal Puzzle Trail (1 mile, 1.6 kilometres; same route as Cwm Cadian Trail).
The Animal Puzzle Trail leaflet gives clues to help children find the hidden animals in the woods along the Cwm Cadian Trail. Leaflets are available from a dispenser in the car park.

Tan y Coed Trail (1.5 mile, 2.5 kilometres).
This moderate walk meanders uphill through conifer trees and then through more open beech and oak woodland. It then descends to the riverside and follows the tumbling river back to the car park.
