Trehafod is a village between Porth and Pontypridd in Rhondda Cynon Taff, south Wales.

The 1847 tithe map of the area shows a number of farms on the area that was to become Trehafod, these were named, Hafod Uchaf, Hafod Genol and Hafod Fawr. It was from these farms that Trehafod was to take its name. Hafod is a Welsh word that can mean "summer dwelling" or "upland farm".

Trehafod is bordered by the train line and the River Rhondda running through the village.

Trehafod is now most famous for the Rhondda Heritage Park which was, at the peak time for coal production, one of the biggest producers in the area. Guided tours of the mines are now daily events.

Due to the river flowing very close to a lot of houses within the village there have been a number of floodings. The biggest floods were in 1960, where in some streets the whole downstairs was under water. Other years that floodings have occurred were 1921, 1929 and most recently in the mid 1990s.

The village was visited by the Queen on 13 June 2002 during her Jubilee tour of the UK. Other royal guests who have visited in the past include King George V and Queen Mary in 1912.
