Torfaen Trail - Figure of 8 Walk

The Torfaen Trail is a figure of eight loop taking in the whole of the Borough, from Cwmbran in the south to Blaenavon in the north, crossing over at Pontypool Park which is situated in the middle of the Borough. This 35 mile route has been broken down into nine linear sections, which vary in distance from 2 miles to 9 miles. Walkers of all ages and abilities will find something to suit them, from an enjoyable stroll to the full 35 mile challenge!

This scenic walk takes in ancient woodlands; forestry; country lanes and open mountain top.

The main starting point for this trail is the car park at Pontypool Active Living Centre. Here there is plenty of parking, a cafe and toilets.
