Previously local riders had to ride up a steep narrow hill to the Graig in Lisvane. There was a serious accident here in 2007 involving a car and rider.
Now there is a parallel route. SAFE contributed £3000, the BHS £1000 towards the grant funded work and huge thanks to Gillian Lawson from Lisvane Community Council without whose unflagging support this would not have been possible.
The step down at the Tongwynlais end of the horse route was eroding and resembling a cross-country obstacle. Work undertaken by the Forestry Commission and SAFE sited the step over back from the road and provided surfacing material to prevent further erosion.

The Woodland Trust created a new horse route in these woods, near Michaelston-le-pit. SAFE donated £1,000 to the Trust towards the £6,800 cost of the route.
