Start: South end of Ynysangharad Road
End: North end of Coedpenmaen Road
Distance: 1.05 miles (approx)
Coming from the south, the first landmark you will pass on Ynysangharad Road is the industrial/retail park on the west side.
Continuing north takes you onto Coedpenmaen Road and across the A470 via a footbridge and through more of Pontypridd's streets until you finally reach proper off-road track again just before Cilfynydd.
It's definitely worth straying from the Taff Trail in Pontypridd to take in Ynysangharad Park and the wonderful tree trunk sculptures it exhibits. You can also cross the river at the west side of the park to get to Taff Street where you will find plenty of shops.

This large park on the east side of Pontypridd has plenty of fun things for kids and adults alike. There is a splash zone and play area for the young ones and plenty of open space for picnics, football and other outdoor activities.
The park's open-air swimming pool closed in 1991 but was restored in 2016 as part of a £2.3million lottery funded programme. RCT Council expects 30,000 people a year to use the pool.Google Map
