6 mile walk - Led or self-guided

Walk the dog

© Crown Copyright(2016) Visit Wales

If you are new to walking challenges, or not so confident at map-reading, this year we are offering a led walk option on the 6 mile route.  You will be guided around the spectacular landscape by an experienced walk leader, leaving you free to enjoy the wonderful views. If you prefer, you can take this route self guided, challenging yourself with map reading and way-finding.

Enjoy the steady walk along farm tracks and take in the beautiful views of Devil’s Bridge.

To start, there's a slight uphill climb for you to take in the atmospheric views of the wilds of Wales. This route will include 1km of country road walking before another gentle uphill climb to reward you with lake views before reaching basecamp (Tynrhyd Retreat).

All routes will be fully marshalled and the event will be supported by Brecon Mountain Rescue Team.

All Walkers will get:

  • A bespoke route guide
  • A Big Welsh Walk t-shirt
  • A Big Welsh Walk medal
  • Discounted deals at local accommodation, attractions and food & drink outlets

Is this a family friendly walk?

Yes, it is. We hope you and your family enjoy our walk to the local community woodland. We have organised a programme of activities in the woodland for you and your family to enjoy.

Can I bring a dog?

Yes you can, but please keep your dog under control at all times. Please be mindful that the route includes numerous stiles, which your dog may need help getting over.
