Overview

'The Crychan Forest and neighbouring Halfway Forest is set in beautiful countryside nestling between the Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains. Here miles of waymarked trails take you through tranquil grassy gorges, along old drover’s routes and past cascading waterfalls, taking in breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains of Mid Wales. The Forest is beautifully situated at the gateway of the Cambrian mountains, on the border of the Brecon Beacons National Park ... Access onto the Epynt Way can be made at 3 locations from the waymarked trails in Crychan Forest. This greatly increases the opportunity for exploring the area, the open country of the military ranges provides a contrast to the forest environment.'

Overview

'A series of nine leaflets has been published to help you to get more out of Fforest Fawr Geopark. Each Geotrail introduces you to one of the natural and man-made landscapes of this area. Some are easy strolls, others are more physically demanding. There are some that focus on the underlying rocks, others that look at how man has shaped the place.'

Overview

'Our walks programme, spread over four days, is broad ranging in terms of geography and interest.  There is something for all abilities and interests – all day in the hills, town walks, historical walks, a chance to learn from experts and exclusive access to paths and sites not normally open to the public. Walks are graded according to difficulty and are led by experienced walk leaders, all of whom know and love the area covered and have themselves been traversing the area for many years. Perched on the Wales-England border on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Hay on Wye is blessed with a wonderful mosaic of landscapes which is not only scenically stunning but also steeped in the stories of those who have lived, fought, worked or travelled through the area over the millennia.' Held Mid October.

Overview

'The Brecon Beacons National Park offers some of the area's most impressive scenery. Rising 886 metres above sea-level, Pen y Fan is the highest point in southern Britain, offering extensive panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Nestled below Pen y Fan is Cwm Llwch, a circular lake. Nearby, Cwm Gwdi was once a Ministry Of Defence live firing range and training camp.

Don't fancy trekking up the mountain? You could explore Cwm Sere instead. It's an impressive glaciated valley with beautiful waterfalls and pools and Pen y Fan peering overhead.'

Distance (miles)7
Overview

'A still afternoon over the Brecon Beacons. The Grwyne Fawr river ran dark and noisy after rain under the single arch of Llangenny bridge, the landlady of the Dragon’s Head Inn worked on her flowerbeds in the sunshine, and all seemed right with the little world folded into its valley in the eastern skirts of the mountains. It was a stiff old pull up the hill out of Llangenny ...'
