Public transportation from Cardiff to Aberfan?

Wondering how to get to Aberfan from Cardiff via public transportation. I see that there are trains from Cardiff to Merthyr Vale. It doesn’t look that far to walk from Merthyr Vale to Aberfan according to the map. I can’t tell from the map if it is safe to walk. Are there footpaths, sidewalks?

I haven’t been, so can’t speak to the safety issue, but the distance from the train station, depending on where exactly you’re going, is just under a mile. Based on Google maps satellite view, it appears it’s mostly sidewalks through primarily a residential area along a main street.
