Short Walks Around the Brecon Beacons

Short Walks Around the Brecon Beacons

by: Alastair Ross
Here are twenty routes to explore the fantastic countryside and heritage of the Brecon Beacons National Park. You don't need to walk far to find hidden woodland dells, astounding views or remarkable historic remains. All twenty walks are 'mini-adventures' discovering the amazing variety of this majestic National Park.

There are many nooks and crannies to explore throughout the park and this series of walks visits many of these. Some use waymarked trails, others combine picturesque paths or open moorland, but all are easy to follow. Although these are short walks, there is no shortage of excitement, challenge and variety.

Each of the walks in the book begins with a side panel giving practical information. This includes a summary description of the walks features and character, distance and terrain, plus instruction on how to reach the start. The detailed route finding instruction which follow are given in numbered paragraphs, and these numbers are shown on the accompanying sketch map to assist with easy navigation. There is also a summary table showing all the walks.
