Cwmcarn Forest dog walk near Crosskeys, Gwent, Wales


A choice of walks for you and the dog in this enormous section of recreational forest.


GPS coords for car park: 51.6362, -3.1151  There's an admission charge per car for the 7 mile scenic forest drive.  And also 7 car parks. Visitor centre, WCs + disabled, cafe, shop, children's facilities. BBQ facilities. Campsite.


There's a choice of trails here, and leaflets and maps can be picked up at the visitor centre.

As a quick guide:

The Nant Carn trail is just under a mile and is stile-free. There are a couple of narrow kissing gates that are tricky with buggies and impossible for mobility scooters.

The Bluebell trail is a bit longer at 1.2 miles, with an option to take a waterside walk as well. The path goes quite close to the cycle track so watch out for this.

And there are also sections of longer paths, a 12 mile circular walk and many possibilities in between!
