Brecon Beacons Outstanding Circular Walks

Brecon Beacons Outstanding Circular Walks

by Brian Conduit and Neil Coates. Revised by Tom Hutton
This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks throughout the Brecon Beacons National Park which comprises four separate mountain ranges. The most easterly is the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons themselves constitute only the central range despite giving their name to the whole area. To the west of them lies Fforest Fawr and the most westerly of all is the Black Mountain (singular and not to be confused with the Black Mountains in the east). Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale Explorer maps and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 routes to choose from, colour coded for difficulty, and all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the route's main features. The following detailed route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and the route is highlighted in yellow on the full colour map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
