A walk around FForestfach Woods
Walk: SOC 04
Location: Fforestfach behind Dunelm - adjacent woodland walk
Directions: Drive towards Swansea, joining M4 J45 heading west, come off at J47, 2nd exit from large roundabout, towards Gower, down a hill to another roundabout, first left to Fforestfach and after 200 yards, left at large set of traffic lights, leaving shopping areas behind you. A few hundred yards along from the traffic lights, as the road bends round to the right, take a sharp left down a small lane for a few yards until it dead ends in a dirt track. Park up and follow the dirt track around to the right, into woodland area. (I call this the Dunelm Wood Walk because it is effectively behind Dunelm).
Distance (miles): 22.3

Pop in to: Fforestfach & Pontardulais Road shopping centres - there are two, one each side of the traffic lights. There is a Tesco Plus Superstore, very large, which is worth popping in to as it is so big. Also the local soft furnishings shop Dunelm - excellent for bedding, cushions, curtains, blankets, rugs and assorted fabrics - is worth visiting, plus various other shops.
