Walking

One of the best ways to enjoy the Geopark is to explore it on foot. There is a good path network throughout most of the area and virtually all of the higher ground is open country to which there is public access.

A series of Geotrails has been published.  Each of the nine leaflets looks at a different landscape and introduce visitors to the geology and heritage of various corners of the Geopark.  Keep an eye out for them!

In addition waymarked routes such as the Beacons Way provide the serious walker with a chance to sample much of the Geopark’s most stunning scenery.

Take a look too at  some of the geology walks leaflets that you can download from the South Wales Geologists’ Association website.

The National Park Authority publishes a series of Walk Cards, three of which are to be found within the Geopark. Look out for

  • ‘Pen y Fan and Cribyn’
  • ‘The Beacons Circuit’
  • ‘Explore Llandovery’

The National Park Authority has also produced a series of audio trails and podcasts which are available to download.

Learn more about these and more at the walking pages on the Brecon Beacons National Park website.
