Aimed primarily at Parents and Kids this walk is also open to all, so, go get booking!

Blaen y Glyn is a fine location set between Pen y Fan and Talybont on Usk


Through the pine forest thick with moss we travel before coming upon a rather majestic waterfall that has carved out a large bowl with a finely polished river bed. We’ll likely snack here and take in the ambiance before heading on. We will wander on and the highlight of our evening must be the walk through an abandoned railway tunnel, lights out, in absolute darkness. Don’t worry, we have ways of getting you all through safely, but do you dare!

This is an easy-paced moderate walk for those looking for an enjoyable day out, those building fitness levels, and those with younger children who might not appreciate a 15 mile mountain day.
