The Radyr section of the Taff Trail is a small part between Whitchurch and Tongwynlais. Travelling north, and after leaving the road section that runs past Cardiff High School Old Boys Rugby Club (Forest Farm Road), you'll reach the off-road trail leading to the blue bridge across to Radyr train station and a weir.
The weir is a great place to stop for a break and, although the seating area is a little broken, there are some large rocks you can sit on and watch the fast-flowing water crashing down the weir.
There is also a stony pathway leading down to the river which is perfect for skipping stones. This is a very popular stopping point and you'll often see dogs splashing in the water. You can stand on a large metal grid that is installed right above the flowing water and watch the powerful frothing white water right under your feet.

The weir in Radyr is a great place to stop and rest. Completely overhauled and improved in 2016. the weir is now home to a hydro-electricity plant that generates energy for the surrounding area by means of two giant turbines. There are plenty of places to sit and it is a lovely place to relax while watching the wildlife.Google Map
