The southerly part of the Whitchurch section of the trail is mostly roadside pathway. A dedicated cycle lane on Ty Mawr Road is available although in places the overgrowth from gardens and bushes makes it impossible to stick to.
The northerly half of this section consists of off-road track with some rough terrain just before/after Forest Farm Road.
The Water Wheel is a notable point of interest here.

Built in 1795, the Melingriffith Water Wheel was installed to pump water to the Melingriffith canal between Maindy and Cardiff Docks. It was used until the late 1920s and is now a significant landmark on the Taff Trail.
