Cwm Câr - Martin Lewis Rees

18 Mawrth 2021

 

“Cwm Câr, a small tributary valley of Tâf Fechan just south of Pont Dolygaer, is a place I return to frequently. Once I followed the stream, Nant Câr Fach, from Pontsticill reservoir to it’s junction with the Taff Trail – an exciting and difficult route but not recommended!

There is an easy forest track north of the stream (Taff Trail) with great views of Ponsticill reservoir and surrounding hills and Cwm Callan opposite. This track has a weird section of tarmac before a bridge which crosses the stream. Many people pass here and miss the highlight of the valley.

Three streams tumble down off Tormwnt (Rhyd Ddu,Trawsnant and Câr Fach) to form a magnificent group of falls hidden from walkers and bikers. Sometimes the blandest of hills such as Tormwnt have the greatest treasures.”

Arweiniodd Martin daith gerdded o amgylch ffynonellau Taf gyda’r Taf Fyw ychydig yn ôl. Mae ganddo wybodaeth anhygoel am yr ardal; ar ôl treulio llawer o amser yn gofalu am y llwybrau mae cymaint yn eu defnyddio i gyrraedd Pen y Fan.
