Craig Llysfaen is a 264m high hill in South Wales, just above Cardiff. This walk takes you from a quiet woodland carpark up through wide tracks and forestry until you get onto the open ridgeway.
From the trig point you get wide views over Cardiff, the Bristol Channel, Flat Holm and England.
The route is easy to follow and makes for fairly easy walking, although after heavy rain the track is very muddy and can flood in places.
One of the higher Southern points in Wales it is worth a visit, especially on a clear day to get a panorama of Cardiff and beyond.
I think it would be worth a visit in more interesting weather to get some better photos of Cardiff. My visit was rather dreary and grey so I didn’t get the best of it. In good weather it would make a good spot for a picnic and you can walk along this ridgeway for quite some distance and I imagine that would be a good walk.
