The Taff Trail and Merthyr Viaduct

The Taff Trail is a 58 mile long cycle path that links both Cardiff and Brecon in South Wales. A great way to explore the best of the south Wales countryside with its varied rural and suburban landscapes, and still enjoy what our capital city and arguably one of our most famous market towns has to offer. Cycling or walking the Taff Trail even takes you through Merthyr Tydfil and one of the finest examples of a viaduct in Wales. The Cefn Coed Viaduct is 115 feet high in places and at 725ft long is the third longest viaduct in Wales.
