Details

Rhayader and the Elan Valley is a great area to get off the beaten track. You'll find something for everyone from gentle relaxing walks including Town Trail, wildlife and nature trails to more challenging long distance routes for more experienced walkers. A few examples are listed below and further information is available from the Elan Valley Visitor Centre or the local Rhayder Information Centre

RHAYADER TOWN TRAIL
Beginning from the Smithfield Market this walk will take about one hour at a leisurely pace. It is accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs although there is steep 50m climb at Waun Capel Parc

RHAYADER RIVERSIDE WALK
The Riverside Walk starts at the Car Park in Water Street where you will find an interpretative panel. Follow the river bank for views across the rover to Groe Park

THE ELAN VALLEY TRAIL
The Elan Valley Trail is a linear path following the line of the old Birmingham Corporation Railway. The trail starts in Cwmdauddwr, just west of Rhayader and finishes 13 km (8 miles) further up the Elan Valley at Craig Goch Dam.

The trail is virtually flat and has self-closing gates, picnic sites and regular stopping points with seating where you can rest and enjoy the views. Following the line of the railway used in the building of the dams, the Elan Valley Trail is suitable for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and the less-able.

GWASTEDYN CHURCH TRAIL
This circular 36 mile trail over an established pilgrimage route begins and ends in Rhayader and Cwmdeuddwr. Linking seven historic churches, the route uses mountain paths, lanes and old railway lines to guide you into the heart of our magnificent mountain, river and lake country.

To follow the Trail takes you into a world of history and literature derived from the world of the Celtic Saints, the Romans and Romano British, the Normans, the Welsh princes, the medieval monks through to the romantic poets and the Victorians.
