Advice for Walkers

To get the most enjoyment from walking and exploring Torfaen’s varied countryside, making use of an ordnance survey map is strongly recommended. The countryside can change rapidly and way-markers can easily be missed. 

Ensure that you wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear, as some sections of the Trail could be muddy and slippery.
