Brecon Beacons - 4 Peak Treker Trail
by Treker on Mar 27, 2010
Talybont, Wales, United Kingdom
12.3 miles
Great trip - Although unless you are intending to run it allow 5.30 (hrs/mins) to complete the walk.General View Good views all around can be very wet under-foot so good walking boots advised.  I would say this is quite a strenuous walk and to take both water and some food with you.  This walk covers the four peaks in one go and is 20km our average moving speed was 4.3km/hr.  The initial push...

Waterfall Walk - Brecon Beacons

A lovely family walk in the Southern Brecon Beacons to view the spectacular Sgwd Clun Gwyn and Sgwd yr Eira Waterfalls. Initially thought it would be a simple path - but soon found out that the path was very difficult in places, and alot of up and downs to be tackled.

This is a  little known and not very busy walk in the Black Mountain region of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The scenery is stunning with shear drops, shaply peaks, and lovely lakes.

The Waterfalls of Ystradfellte

9.4 miles
A stunning, late springtime hike through the famous waterfall-studded forests and gorges of the Mellte, Hepste and Neath rivers in the southern foothills of the Brecon Beacons. This is the best time in Fforest Fawr as spring greenery and flowers bloom, while the waterfalls remain at full spate – photographers’ and outdoor-lovers’ paradise. At various points along the walk the path actually goes behind, underneath and through the waterfalls themselves! Thanks to Simon...

The area of the Brecon Beacons is an outstanding area of natural beauty not to be missed if visiting or holidaying in and around the South Walesarea. It has a varied landscape suitable of all ages and can provide visitors with gentle walks in valleys with waterfalls or more challenging peaks for the more adventurous of us.

One of the UK's great National Parks. The area boasts variety of scenery from rolling hills to open moors and mountains. Very accessible so always something new to see. I've been coming here since my teenage years, and never tire of it.
