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.'

'Hay is a pretty little town swept by the river Wye on the north, with the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons to the south and west, and the lush agricultural land of Herefordshire to the east.

We hope to be back with a walking festival soon and look forward to seeing you there ...'

Starting fromBrecon Beacons
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'.

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 ...'
