Wildlife

Wildlife Trail, Stone CarvingThe Trevithick Trail passes through a variety of habitats, among them ancient semi-natural deciduous woodland, grassland and wetland. Running alongside is the River Taff, offering river bank habitat to animals such as Otter and Kingfisher.

The layered structure of the woodland, including woodland ground flora, shrub layer and canopy, supports a diversity of plant and animal species; while a mosaic of different habitats along the trail (including grasslands and woodland glades, and riparian and wetland habitat) also supports a huge variety of flora and fauna.

There are also some interesting stone carvings of some of the wildlife that can be found along the trail.
