Countryside Walks

There are many fine walks on the hillsides around Pentre. Some are established rights of way and fairly easy to find and walk, whilst one or two others could do with a little attention. This section will be developed to identify all the paths which are public rights of way either as footpaths or bridleways. If you are a regular walker don't be afraid to cut back overgrowth, for in this way, with care, you will help to keep paths open for yourself and others to enjoy.

 

In addition most Natural Resources Wales (formerly Forestry Commission) land is open access, but please remember that it may be closed for safety reasons whilst felling takes place.

 

Pedal cycling is permitted on bridleways, but not on footpaths. Motor bikes of any sort, and other off-road vehicles are not permitted on any of the rights of way within Pentre. nor on open access land or forestry access roads (except where they have the specific permission of the land-owner). There has been an increase recently in off-roading by quad-bike users and the damage they cause is plain to see. If you witness such events please phone 101 and report it (location date and time).

 

Dogs should be kept under close control at all times, and on a lead on paths which cross farm land.

A view from Pentre Road bridleway. Taken from a spot only a couple of hundred yards from the start of the track behind Pentre House, it shows you do not have to climb to the top to find good views.

 


This is a view from the bridleway between Maendy and The Bwlch, an extremely scenic walk in its own right.

Path now cleared for a second time after a several years covered in brambles. It is however an ongoing battle to keep brambles cut back, so it would be a help if walkers here were prepared to undertake, with care, a little trimming as they pass along it.

 

If your organisation or group has a page on this site please ensure you keep me up to date BY EMAIL only of what's going on.
