The 800 acres of Margam Park provides a perfect backdrop for a walk in the countryside. The blue way-markers for this walk begin at the track next to the Park’s Visitor Centre, up the road from the park entrance and car park. The Pulpit Trail begins with a nice gentle stroll beside the wooded slopes of the Celtic Iron Age Hillfort, also known as Mynydd y Castell. As you follow the path upwards, Cwm Phillip Valley and the old farm at Cwm Maelwg come into sight. At the Pulpit, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of Margam Country Park, Eglwys Nunydd Reservoir and the smaller waters of Kenfig pool. In the distance, Swansea Bay and the Gower and Devon coastlines can also be seen.

Wildlife Watching: Margam Park is well known for its deer and you are likely to see Fallow Deer on your walk. Further up the ridge you have the chance to see Adders basking and the valley is a sheltered haven for various butterflies. Spring time walkers can enjoy displays of Bluebells, Wood Sorrel and Violets.
