Swansea Ramblers Walk
Clydach and Swansea Canal
14th December 2013
Leader: Mike Clarke
Mike knows the hidden paths above Clydach which give us fine views over the Swansea Valley. We set off from Coed Gwylim Park and followed the Swansea Canal before ascending above Clydach to discover the higher paths. When we returned to the start we explored the community centre with its history of the area.
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.

Gathering in Coed Gwilym Park
Mike leads us down the canal
Cold day but dry
Almost at the end of the canal
Everyone enjoying it and socialising as they go
This is where we turn uphill
A voyage of discovery
Mabel makes sure we don't get lost!
And footpath signs give us a clue!
Wonderful views of the Swansea Valley
Another chance to socialise and make new friends
Footpath passes by houses on the hill
They seem pleased to see us
Perhaps we've found a new member?
Nearly down again
Plenty of water after the wet weather
Nearly back to the main road
Mike knows the way
Returning the way we came
