Fancy walking the Caerphilly Mountains?

If you fancy a healthier alternative to eating mince pies and drinking mulled wine this run-up to Christmas, then why not blow the cobwebs away with the Caerphilly mountain walk?

The walk takes place on 17 December and is organised by the Gay Outdoor Club’s (GOC) South Wales group. The six and a half mile hike promises superb views throughout and incorporates ancient woodlands, farmlands, open countryside, streams and a limestone quarry.

Huw James, co-ordinator for the South Wales GOC group said, “The pace is more often leisurely with the focus on enjoying the views and the company.” 

The group walks take place once a month and attract anything from five to 30 people. “Each event is organised by a member who has a walk they wish to share,” he continued.
