Description

Cwmcarn Forest Drive

Cwmcarn Forest offers something for all the family. The visitor centre provides a place to stock up on refreshments and gifts as well as finding out about what you can do in the area. Why not get behind the wheel and treat the family to a unique fun day out along the stunning seven miles of Cwmcarn Forest Drive. Explore by car, bike and foot the delights of this hidden wooded valley that culminates in a stunning sequence of views. The hills of this previously mined area have been transformed into peaceful forests with impressive views. It is difficult to imagine that some of the surrounding hillsides were slag heaps with hardly a tree to be seen. The Forestry Commission started to plant trees here in 1922. Today Cwmcarn Forest in the Nantcarn valley has become a haven for people and wildlife.

I hope this is a carved tree, because I've added it to "sculpted tree" tour. Sounds like a great place rescued back from industry
