Between January and October 2022 Andy will be leading 9 day long hill walks taking in all of the 2000ft peaks of the BBNP (Brecon Beacons National Park). He last delivered these as a series of walks for this group in 2017, attempting in 2020 but something got in the way, and prior to that, ‘back in the day’, when he was a part time warden and guided walks and volunteer co-ordinator for the BBNP.
Starting in the west the walks will trend eastwards. From Moel Gornach in the west to The Black Mountain (South Top) in the east is the road that we’ll travel. You can join one or a few or all of these fine mountain walks.
Look out for Andy’s Beacons Way trek, taking in roughly the same peaks but in reverse order and as a week long backpacking trip. Join him on this if you’re up for it!
