This is a circular walk
Starting from the Llandegfedd Reservoir vistor centre and shop, we will enjoy a circular walk around the reservoir passing through a conservation area and sites of special scientific interest. The walk will include some moderate to hard steep sections through Cwm-bwrwch wood (225 m of ascent), and will include some short sections along the road side. Dogs are permitted if they are kept under control, and on a short lead during some parts of the walk.With some great views of the reservoir on our way round, we return to the Visitor Centre where we will enjoy post walk refreshments in the cafe overlooking the water.
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.
