10 mile loop beginning and ending at St Matthias Church on Cardiff Road, Treharris. Steep climb to begin with up to Merthyr Common via the Mynedd y Capel standing stone and through the Cairn field - excellent views of Merthyr Vale, Aberfan, Troedyrhrw to the west and Bedlinog to the east. Followed by a rewarding 5 mile desent down to join the NR8/NR47 Taff Trail (on the Trewithick Tramway) to the wonderfull Glentaf Arms for well deserved refreshments. Mostly paved single track, some off road moor track, some mud.
