Walk! The Brecon Beacons Guidebook

Walk! The Brecon Beacons Guidebook

by: Bob Greaves
This meticulously designed full colour guide book contains forty great walks, ranging from a gentle stroll around Usk Reservoir to a challenging four peaks in a day Grwynne Fawr route. All the walks are within the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of great beauty and tremendous variety. High peaks hide glacial lakes in ancient moorland, man-made reservoirs and canals blend with their natural surroundings, waterfalls cascade down secret gorges, while ancient castles, churches and monasteries stud the landscape.

The book is outstanding in the navigational information it provides. Each walk includes a route summary, ratings for effort, time, distance, ascents and descents, refreshments and vertigo risk. The fully detailed walk description includes frequent timings to aid navigation and check you progress, plus GPS waypoints at every key point on the route. Also provided are full colour 1:40,000 Ordnance Survey maps with the route and waypoints marked and lots of full colour photographs. Short walk and stroll alternatives are also provided.
