Strenuous 12 miles / 19.3 km
This is a re run of what appears to be my winter special ! It starts from the little hamlet of Capel Y Ffin in the peaceful Vale of Ewyas before we begin the serious stuff - the steep ascent from the famous Vision farm, ( more about that later), to the ridge then a descent into the Olchon valley. From here its another tough climb up onto the Crib Y Garth and along the ridge to Hay Bluff. Yet another descent into the Gospel Pass before returning via Lord Herefords Knob back to the start. please be aware, this is a long, tough walk in probably cold possibly wet conditions, so maybe more suitable for our more experienced walkers.
The large car park at the very end of Fields Park Road. Nearest post code CF11 9JT

This is a circular walk
Please note that this walk is strenous with over 1200metres of ascent and because of limited daylight, it will be fairly quick paced. Its probably suited to those members with more experience of winter hill walking.
Ascent: 1200 m / 3937 feet
