With the aim of encouraging families to get out into the fresh air and explore the countryside together, this collection of trails includes easy walks suitable for pushchairs as well as more strenuous routes for adventurous older children. The 20 walks all have in common the beautiful landscape of south west Wales including coastal routes, mountain climbs and town trails. Take on the challenge of Worms Head on Gower, involving an exciting scramble at low tide to reach Outer Head, or bag one of the Carmarthenshire Fans and take in their breathtaking, paramic views. Explore the fascinating history of Roman and medieval towns or follow animal characters through woodland and waterside trails. From the power of the rugged west Wales coastline to the tranquillity of the Alpine-like Afan forestry, the trails uncover Wales' glorious landscape and showcase one of the most diverse corners of the UK.
