Pen Y Fan From The North

A fine and lesser ventured route up and onto Pen y Fan and available to most levels of fitness, so long as you can dig deep for the up. it’s a 12km and 700m of ascent over, in the main, good surfaces. We’ll take it easy on the way up so as to accommodate those who are beginning to get out there and walk the mountains.

Pen Y Fan – Challenge From The South

Starting at a lay-by on the A470 we’ll walk a route that will see us rather alone for a good deal of the day despite walking to the summit of the highest mountain in Southern Britain, Pen y Fan. This walk is 20km and has over 1000m of ascent so we regard this as a challenge event for seasoned walkers 🙂

A Roman Road, Secret Valley And Fine Hill

This walk takes Andy back to when he lived at Forest Lodge and opened the first mountain bike hire centre in the Brecon Beacons. We’ll meet at Forest Lodge and then follow Sarn Helen, a Roman Road, to the Hanging Valley, perhaps the most beautiful spot in the National Park.

Speech Hse, New Fancy, Sculptures & Ponds

A day exploring further local attractions, following yesterdays explorations, of Speech House, New Fancy View, Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail and Cannop Ponds. This is a fine, day long walk, with no paid ‘attractions’, just interesting stuff to see along the way 🙂
