Neath Canal

3 miles (5 km)

This section of the Neath Canal makes for a lovely waterside cycle or walk. It runs along the National Cycle Network route from the parking area at Craig Nedd, Resolven to Glynneath. You'll pass pretty locks and bridges with views of the River Neath along the way.
St Illtyd's Walk runs through Resolven so you could pick this up and head to the nearby Melincourt Falls to extend your walk.
