A circuit is possible from the lane to Bron-llangwrda SN662803 through Coed Bronllangwrda to the ridge above Allt Goch and back past Cefnllidiart farm down to the start (3.6 kms), or across to the Tynllidiart Arms pub (3.8 kms).  Alternatively, the path up through Coed Bronllangwrda can be used to access Cwm Melindwr up to Old Goginan and the hill country above Cwmerfyn.

1.5 kms of level path beside the Afon Clarach.  Can be extended into a circuit by using the bridleway above Rhyd-tir-isaf to the B4572 above the Crematorium, westward on paths through Coed-y-Cwm to the eastern end of the Clarach Holiday Village, and returning on the path to Pont Llangorwen past Ffynnon-ddu.

Llanrhystud Community Circuit     Paths 30/5 > 30/6 > 30/11 > 30/10 > 30/12 > 30/8  > 30/7 > 30/6 > 30/5 cleared and diverted and provided with stiles, bridges and waymarking.  Glan-yr-Afon SN538695 > Ffordd-lâs > Felin Rhiw bwys > Pentre-mawr > Ffrwyd-ganol > Pen Rhosser > Glan-yr-Afon.

2.5 kms path through beautiful lower Cwm Wyre.  33 steps and several steep sections.  Possible to use quiet roads on to Llanddeiniol and paths down Cwm Carrog to make a circular walk from Llanrhystud.

Lledrod Community Circuit     Paths 25/39 > 25/38 > 25/31 > 25/30 cleared, old metal kissing gate and stone-slab bridge restored, and new bridge placed.  Lledrod Church SN646702 > Berthdomled > A485 > Ty’n-yr-helyg > A485 > Rhiw-afallen > Rhyd-lŵyd Chapel SN646708.

A 3 kms circuit of the village that links church with chapel.  Care should be taken on the main road sections.

Rhydyfelin: Tanybwlch Beach to Tan-y-castell     Path 16/26 newly-designated path provided with stiles.  SN577796 to SN587788.

1.6 kms link that allows circuits beside the Afon Ystwyth or along the Ystwyth Trail, back to Tanybwlch Beach.  Passes Neuadd Tanybwlch, the former home of Lord Ystwyth.

Trefeurig: Pen-rhiw-newydd to Cwmsymlog     Path 9/36 cleared of gorse and stiles placed from Pen-rhiw-newydd SN670841 to the Cwmsymlog road SN691838.

2.3 kms linear path through sheep pasture along a ridge and into the Banc Cwm-isaf forest up to the lane to Cwmsymlog.  Can be made into a circuit back through Penbont Rhydybeddau using path 9/38 across to Cwmdarren, a path with a footbridge and other improvements by the Work Party.
