Walk-eight-logoThis circular walk typifies the best of inland Vale of Glamorgan: rich and colourful landscape, large areas of native forest, pretty villages, and a series of impressive views of the coast, nearby towns and city.

Hensol, Pendoylan and surrounding area: 7miles

Highlights include the mixed deciduous and conifer forest which gives the walk its name, home to the beautiful and pure Pysgodlyn lake. Historic Pendoylan village provides a welcome spot for some refreshments before heading uphill to take in the best of the views, including part of the Cardiff city skyline in the distance.
