Overview

From the Storey Arms car park we cross a style onto and across Bryn Du to the foot of Fan Fawr. We then ascent strenuously to the summit of Fan Fawr and onto it’s rear slope to the trig point. We return to the Fan Fawr summit and descent along Cefn yr Henriw to the Beacons Reservoir and back via Pont ar Daf to Storey Arms car park.

Bryn Du and the return route around the west side of Beacons Reservoir can be wet and boggy.
