Merthyr Mawr Warren : footpath to Cog-y-brain
Merthyr Mawr Warren : footpath to Cog-y-brain
A photograph showing a short stretch of a rather uneven footpath which runs across high duneland to the top of the tall dune seen in SS8577 : Cog-y-brain and Cwm y Gaer. Visible in the photo are small areas of exposed rock at the surface of the path. This is one of the rare spots where some of the mass of limestone which for the most part has been covered by sand to form the high dune system at Merthyr Mawr Warren remains visible. A more spectacular instance of exposure of this limestone is seen in SS8677 : Exposed section of cliff at Merthyr Mawr Warren.

The footpath in the photo is not the public footpath shown on the accompanying OS map, which runs a little to the north through Cwm y Gaer.
