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.
Ascent: 538 m / 1765 feet
