This walk takes Andy back to when he lived at Forest Lodge and opened the first mountain bike hire centre in the Brecon Beacons.

About

We’ll meet at Forest Lodge and then follow Sarn Helen, a Roman Road, to the Hanging Valley, perhaps the most beautiful spot in the National Park.

We follow a little walked route to the summit of Fan Frynich with spectacular views of Pen y Fan and the Central Brecon Beacons before descending, likely following some old workings and almost never used tracks, back to Forest Lodge. This is a walk with one hill and covers 7 miles. Some have found it strenuous but we think it is moderate… You can decide on the day…
