Walk

The mountain car park is always really busy and I'm not sure if it's because the snack bar is so good or because the people are actually enjoying the view from the mountain but I can personally recommend both as fantastic.

Wonderfull views and a good walk from Cardiff.
Jul 2020
I walked the route over Rhiwbina Hill, through the ancient woodland, passed the Black Cock Inn and up to Caerphilly Common. A lovely walk. The views over Cardiff and Caerphilly from Caerphilly Mountain are wonderful. With a 360 degree view including spectacular views over Cardiff to Cardiff Bay and beyond. On a clear day, you can see Most of rhe Coastline opposite, Weston - S - Mare and much further afield. There is a lovely mountain cafe nearby wherfe you can get some lovelky refreshments including cooked food. If you are looking for a good walk through abcient woodland and ending with a magnificant view over Cardiff and Cearphilly, this is the walk for you. I live locally and walk this (and other) routes several times a year.

Lots of lovely walks. Some breathtaking views over the Bristol Channel from the south side of the mountain. Many footpaths around the mountain. Can see horses, cows and sheep on some of the public footpath routes.

I live close to Caerphilly mountain and I can recommend walking on the mountain, especially with a dog. The mountain has tracks to follow, is beautiful in all seasons, and has stunning views. I highly recommend a visit to the snack bar to round your trip off.

Caerphilly mountain

Been up here a few times including taking a dog for a walk as well, the car park is free and the mountain cafe serves hot and cold drinks and food in fact a fair number of people call in to pick up food to take away. The views are impressive if the weather is nice as you can see to Cardiff Bay and all the hills surrounding the valleys . Worth a trip if you get the time.

Panoramic Views
Oct 2019 • Couples
When you're fortunate enough to visit the valleys, you have to, and indeed should, also climb the accompanying mountains. Thus particular one affords fantastic views of the Rhymney valley and the beautiful green countryside. At certain times of the year, the landscape is changed by dramatic colour variations and the air is clean and bracing

Majestic view of Caerphilly
Aug 2019
Caerphilly mountain is a wonderful walk, once at the top of the mountain, easy walk, you can see the Caerphilly basin in all its glory and on a clear day you can see up the Rhymney valley, if turn around you can see the channel.
There is also a very acceptable cafe at the bottom for drinks after the walk
