Start time 10:15
8 miles / 12.9 km
A low level walk which is great for people new to walking (although please note it is 8 miles long). It takes in the Lliedi reservoirs and pleasant countryside and woods.
There is some road walking at the start which is longer than has previously been the case due to a path blockage which, hopefully, our Footpaths Officer will sort out with the council in time for the walk. In any case most of the walk is off-road and the roads we do walk on are quiet country lanes.

This circuit explores both base and top of the Black Mountains impressive north facing escarpment with a dramatic decent of Y Grib, more commonly known as the Dragons Back, and a walk through crumbling ruins of Castell Dinas, the highest stone built castle in Wales.This walk is strenuous and has sections of very steep ascent and descent. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times due to roaming livestock and steep descents.
