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

'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.'

'Walks specially designed to tie in with bus routes, so you can catch the bus back home after your efforts – there’s walks for families and some strenuous mountain hikes too.'

HOWEVER: 'As a result of falling income from partners and concessionary fares, a significant rise in tendered prices for the coming year and to accommodate overall funding reductions of more than 13% over the next two years, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority has reluctantly made the decision to withdraw the Beacons Bus service in 2014'.
