Walks in the Park

The 800 acres of the park provides a perfect backdrop for a walk in the countryside

The 800 acres of the Park provides a perfect backdrop for a walk in the countryside, whether a stroll after Sunday lunch or a hike along the Coed Morgannwg Way to Afan Forest Park Country Park, our sister country park in the Afan Valley.

You are free to wander and explore throughout the park.

If you prefer to follow a self guided trail we have four waymarked routes for you to follow.

'Walk packs' giving full details of the routes and what to look out for along them are available to purchase from entrance cabin and Gift Shop.

Each walk is colour coded, they all begin just up the track from the Castle Visitor Centre.

Choose from:

Pulpit Trail

Blue waymark 2.25 miles Some steep sections

This trail takes you up to the pulpit view point, the view from here is well worth the steep climb, on a clear day the fields and villages of North Somerset can clearly be seen.

Monastic Trail

Purple waymark 2.5 miles Some steep sections

This trail takes you around the iron age hillfort and then up to the remains of the medieval church Hen Eglwys. The views from the Chapel are excellent - on a clear day you can easily see across to Somerset and Devon.

Cwm Philip Trail

Green waymark 3.5 miles Only for agile people

This trail takes you along the side of the Cwm Philip valley. It follows the path up to the highest point within the park and returns down a wooded valley across the lower ground.

Craig-y-lodge Trail

Red waymark 1.5miles Undulating, easy

A pleasant trail through the lower areas of the park. On all the trails you will see some of the Margam deer particularly the Pulpit and Craig-y-lodge routes. 

With the exception of the public rights of way all the footpaths are permissive footpaths, the park management reserves the right of occasional closure.
