This is an excellent way to spend a sunny day, in the Brecon Beacons with beautiful views in all directions. This walk is on the western side of the A470 and is therefore much quieter than the busy Pen-y-fan routes to the east.

There are two steep climbs during this walk, one at the start and one at the end. Don't be put off however, as the rest of the walk is quite easy and the views on a clear day are more than worth the exertion.

The navigation for this walk is reasonably simple and the waymarks are mostly at easily identifiable features such as the top of hills. The paths in this area can get muddy in the winter and overgrown in the summer, so if you cannot find a path or do not wish to get dirty, pick an alternative route, it should be fairly easy without danger of becoming lost. Should you however lose your way or be hit by bad weather, a general lost procedure should be to head east (towards the start point) until you reach the A470 (the major metalled road) and make your way back to the start point.

This area is quite isolated and is subject to rapidly changing weather. Make sure you are carrying good waterproofs, warm clothes, plenty of fluids and a whistle in case you should become stranded at night or in poor weather. Always tell someone where you are going and when to expect you back.
