- Trip Outline
Blaen y Glyn is a fine location set between Pen y Fan and Talybont on Usk and easy to get to by road from Merthyr Tydfil. This day long walk with plenty of opportunity for photography includes a few highlights that must be mentioned.
Through the pine forest thick with moss we travel before coming upon a rather majestic waterfall that has carved out a large bowl with a fine polished river bed. It’s near here that we will have lunch. We will wander on and the highlight of our day must be the walk through an abandoned railway tunnel, lights out, in absolute darkness. Don’t worry, we have ways of getting you all through safely, but do you dare!
This is an easy paced moderate walk for those looking for an enjoyable day out, those building fitness levels and those with younger children who might not appreciate a 15 mile mountain day.
We will likely be done by 2pm and head over to the wonderful nearby cafe for a well deserved cream tea.
We'll meet at Blaen y Glyn car park.
