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.'

'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.
