Day Walks in the Brecon Beacons is the latest hill walking guidebook in our popular Day Walks series, following guides to the Peak District, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, Snowdonia and South Downs.
This pocket-sized guide features 20 circular routes between 6.8 and 16.5 miles (11 and 16.6 kilometres) in length, suitable for hill walkers of all abilities. The routes are split into four areas – Blorenge & The Black Mountains, The Brecon Beacons, Mynydd Llangatwg & Mynydd Llangynidr, and Fforest Fawr and The Black Mountain.
Local author and walker Harri Roberts shares his favourite walks in the region, including circuits in the hills around Llangors Lake, the Taf Fechan Skyline and Pen y Fan, and the Llanbedr Horseshoe.
Each route features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance & navigation information, and refreshment stops and local information. The walks are illustrated with stunning photography by the author and outdoor photographer Adam Long.
Harri Roberts is a freelance writer, editor and translator based in Newport, Gwent. He has authored a number of Welsh walking guides, including a forthcoming official guidebook to the Wales Coast Path (Amroth to Swansea section). His love of the Brecon Beacons developed during research for an ambitious guide to the Cambrian Way, a high-level, Welsh ‘end-to-end’ across some of the most scenic and mountainous terrain in the country.
