Our Walks

People say the best way to get to know someone is to walk a mile in their shoes. And that applies equally to getting to know Neath Port Talbot too.

So, park the car, put on your walking boots and get a feel for the place and its people (you’ll find us a friendly bunch).

 

Few other places offer the drama and diversity on show in our region. Nature and the man-made. Waterfalls and waves. Country parks and canals. Coast paths and countryside paths. They shape everything we do and everything we are. And you can embrace them at your own pace, be it a gentle river stroll or a hike up hills and down valleys.

 

We couldn’t possibly squeeze all of our walking trails onto one page, so we’ve plotted them on one interactive map for you. For trail details, including maps and trail cards, point and click on the individual trail/s that interest you.
