Swansea Ramblers Walk


Mynydd Gelliwastad

18th May 2013

Leader: Mike Clarke




An easy four mile walk with stunning views over the Swansea Valley.  From the mountain you can see north to the Beacons and south to the sea over Swansea and Port Talbot.

This was one of the weekly gentle and enjoyable Saturday walks for people who want to explore the outdoors without feeling they are on a route march!



Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities.

Try an easy walk of 2-3 hours or our longer strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker.

Maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people?
- Come with Swansea Ramblers!

If you'd like to try a Swansea walk then do come along and find out what the great outdoors is all about.

It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.
You'll be very welcome to join us for three free walks.

If you enjoy walking with us and want to come on even more of our walks, just become a member.

When you join us for a Swansea Walk, ask us about the other walks and social events we do.
