Cardiff, Wales

Garth Hill

Gareth James

In otherwise flat Cardiff, one can see the green protrusion of Garth Hill from miles away. This gentle mountain, located between Llantwit Fardre and Pentyrch about 8 miles to the northwest of Cardiff, is chock full of runnable hiking trails. While a bit of elevation gain is necessary to summit the hill, most of the paths are nice doubletrack over spongy grass or smooth dirt. There are a variety of routes to choose from, but we’ve mapped a straightforward 4 km loop starting from Route des Alpes.

Essentials
