Walk-six-logoDelightful, refreshing walk that includes a glacial valley, wooded ravine and, if  you’re lucky, the occasional leaping salmon

Dinas Powys, Michaelston-le-Pit  and surrounding area - 5 miles

It starts in the middle of Dinas Powys, which despite its name (‘dinas’ is Welsh for ‘city’) is best described as a large village, and a charming one at that.

The square, known as the Twyn, is evidence of its 19th Century expansion when the growth of the coal industry, and railways built to support it, brought people and wealth to the region. Salmon Leaps trail also gives walkers an opportunity to explore the ancient history of Dinas Powys, with a visit to Cwm George Iron Age fort.

The route follows a ‘figure of eight’ allowing walkers to take a shorter 3 mile option.

Am I dog friendly?
