  • Positive Some great views. A mixture of popular mountains such as Pen-y-fan and much less visited areas with sheep and wild ponies. More open moorland than trees or farms. Beacons Way crosses it.
  • Negative Moorland can be muddy and weather can be bad.
  • Oranginas, long distance hiking trails Europe April 1997
  • Rate 8
  • Positive Wales at its best! The colours, Neolithic remains, moss, a rich flora and fauna, Usk-valley (also the name of another famous trail), waterfalls, enchanting views……….
  • Negative Nothing.
