Gorge-walking Code

Covid-19: The Geopark is CLOSED – no public access to Pen y Fan, Waterfall Country etc.

Stay local – save lives!

Balancing recreation and conservation needs

Brecon Beacons National Park Authority has worked with other interested organisations to produce a code of conduct for groups and individuals engaged in gorge-walking.  The gorges of the Geopark and indeed the wider National Park are internationally important for their specialised habitats for a number of species and it is vital that these are not inadvertently damaged.

There is a panel detailing the code at the car park at Craig-y-ddinas near Pontneddfechan. Find out more about Bwa Maen and the Sychryd Gorge which are reached from here.
