With magnificent mountains, sweeping valleys and expansive moorland, the Brecon Beacons offer some of the most dramatic walking landscapes in the world.
There’s an array of walks to suit all abilities, from low-level strolls to challenging hikes, circular loops, waterfall trails, wheelchair-friendly routes, dog-friendly paths, and short walks to longer treks.
Visit Waterfall Country to explore the magical walking routes that wind through the area’s wooded gorges, caves and falls, including the popular Four Falls trail, a 5.2-mile circular walk encompassing four of the largest and prettiest waterfalls.
The Beacon’s breathtaking mountain ranges offer an array of more challenging walking opportunities, from the spectacular peaks of Sugar Loaf, Blorenge and The Skirrid in the Black Mountains, to Pen y Fan, the highest summit in South Wales.
Thanks to the Beacon’s plentiful supply of rain, there are lots of places to enjoy a waterside walk, including the Grwyne Fawr Reservoir, natural lakes Llangorse Lake and Llyn y Fan Fach, and the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal towpath.
