Moderate 8 miles / 12.9 km
A walk in the Brecon Beacons taking in Fan Y Big (aka the diving board)
Pontcanna Fields car park is at the end of Fields Park Road, off Cathedral Road in Pontcanna
Neuadd Car Park - it is free to park here
This is a circular walk
Although graded as a moderate walk this will be taken at a leisurely pace so those out there who are nervous of mountains/ascent can join in.
We start of at the Neuadd Car Park and take a very gentle climb to the foot of Fan Y Big admiring the views across the valley on the way. There is then a short steep climb up to Fan Y Big (aka the diving board) where we are rewarded with fantastic 360 views. We then follow the ridge and link up with the Beacons Way and make the most of the brilliant views before descending back into the valley where we pass a couple of small waterfalls before looping back to the car park.
This is one of hundreds of Ramblers group walks for all ages and abilities every week - all led by our experienced walk leaders.
You’re welcome to join us on any of our walks to see if the Ramblers is for you. Then, once you’ve enjoyed the views, fun, exhilaration and good company, it’s just a case of becoming a member.
Do make sure you're fit enough and have the right footwear and clothing for the walk you want to do, though. You can contact the group or leader if in doubt.
