Overview

Following on from last week’s lowland walk from Craig y Nos, we start this week with a high-level walk.

We will explore part of the Ogof Ffynnon Ddu National Nature Reserve and along a section of the Beacons Way.

We will see some of nature’s wonderful mysteries and man-made industry. 

The walk will be on paths but these can be uneven, rocky, muddy and wet in places.

N.B. There could be some livestock so extreme care must be taken if bringing your dog.
