DARE to DISCOVER walks

DARE to DISCOVER is our campaign to encourage everyone to GO EXPLORE their natural environment.

In partnership with the ramblers, Town and Community Councils and the Countryside Council for Wales, the Council has developed a series of walks developed to showcase the different aspects of our diverse landscape. Walks include some smaller circular walks designed to encourage local residents and visitors alike to access and enjoy the countryside, and parts of our important heritage.
