A day out on mainly easy-to-follow paths that takes in the highest (and most popular) summits in south Wales. A circular route taking in a couple of summits, this route is often used for students, many of whom are experiencing this environment for the first time. It's not too strenuous but commitment is required. There's an option to miss out Cribin if necessary. By starting at the Storey Arms you can have a slightly longer day.
Central Peaks of the Brecon Beacons
420 - 883 m | 17.5 km
A high level mountain walk from the Storey Arms on the A470 onto the highest mountain (Pen-y-Fan 886 metres) in southern Britain for views, weather permitting, of the Usk Valley to the north and the valleys of the south wales coal fields to the south.
11 High Points in Brecon Beacons
165 - 883 m | 16.9 km
Simple walk along the Brecon Beacons.
A walk from Aber, all the way over to the A470, taking in all the high points on the way, marked on the OS map, in total 11 'summits'.
Note that due to the length of the route, two vehicles would be best suited, one at the end, and one at the beginning, unless trail running, where all summits could be attained and a reversal of the route would be possible in daylight hours.
