Brecon Beacons - Short Walks for the Family

Brecon Beacons - Short Walks for the Family

compiled by: Tom Hutton
Ideal walks for families, these scenic routes range from gentler rambles for newcomers to country walking at Castle Meadows, Abergavenny and Garwnant Forest Park to more adventurous walks up the Sugar Loaf, around the Usk Reservoir and to the top of Pen y fan.
Features include clear and easy-to-follow instructions; detailed Ordnance Survey Explorer mapping with the route clearly highlighted, and specially commissioned photographs. There are twenty routes to choose from, colour coded by length and difficulty; green for easy; blue for modest length with some climbing and red for more challenging walks.

An introductory section gives an overview of the Brecon Beacons National Park, which actually comprises four distinct mountain ranges. Central to the area are the Brecon Beacons themselves; in the east are the Black Mountains, in the west is Forest Fawr and in the far west Mynydd Du or the Black Mountain and to the south the Sugar Loaf and the other Abergavenny peaks. This guide includes walks in all of these areas.
