Guidebook to 45 lesser known circular walks in Brecon Beacons National Park, perfect for those wishing to discover the diversity of the region, away from the crowds. The routes, which range from 3.3km (2 miles) to 21.6km (13.4 miles), cover four geographic areas: Mynydd Du (The Black Mountain), Fforest Fawr, Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains (Y Mynyddoedd Duon), offering a variety of stunning mountain and valley walking. Designed to be akin to 'a park ranger in your pocket', route descriptions (together with 1:50,000 OS mapping) are accompanied by commentary on topics such as geomorphology, archaeology, local history, land-use and environmental issues. A useful Welsh-English glossary is also included, as are summary tables organizing routes by both difficulty and interest. A remarkably diverse landscape, the Brecon Beacons National Park showcases some of the best scenery in Wales. The area also offers a plethora of sites and activities for visitors of all ages and interests. Favourite attractions for children include Dan-yr-Ogof Show Caves in the Swansea Valley, Brecon Mountain Railway at Penderyn and Big Pit National Coal Museum near Blaenavon. Picturesque market towns on the edges of the park, such as Llandovery, Brecon, Crickhowell and Abergavenny, are also great places to explore.

Within the boundaries of the Brecon Beacons National Park there are four separate mountain ranges, including the Black Mountains as well as the Beacons themselves. Most of the area is underlain by old red sandstone, which distinguishes it from the more rugged mountains of North Wales, and several walks explore this terrain of smooth, sweeping grassy uplands and wide, open vistas, including the Brecon Beacons Horseshoe. By extending some walks to the south of the mountains, in the valleys, vale and coast of Glamorgan (including Llantwit Major and the Heritage Coast), the scope of scenic and historic attractions is extended.

This is probably the best half day circular walk in the Brecon Beacons. Within the space of a few hours it takes in a great series of waterfalls, a beautiful wooded valley and upland scenery that offers spectacular views over much of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains – and you’ll also have the opportunity to explore the memorial site of a Wellington Bomber which crashed here in July 1942. While the walk is extremely rewarding, it is not for the inexperienced walker, particularly in wintery conditions.
