A Boot Up the Brecon Beacons

A Boot Up the Brecon Beacons

by: Tom Hutton
The Brecon Beacons National Park is home to the most southerly mountains in Britain, and is understandably attractive to walkers of all types. Apart from the region's towering peaks there are valleys, rivers, lakes and moors to explore and this little book is your guide. It contains a collection of ten easy to moderate walks especially written with families and groups of friends in mind looking for an active and interesting day out. Local expert Tom Hutton takes you from the tops of the highest mountains to the floors of the most spectacular valleys, highlighting plenty of fascinating point of interest along the way.

All the walks are circular and begin at a car park or safe parking location with the grid reference provided. Public transport options are given where available. The walks are graded between one and three boot symbols with three boots the hardest. However, most of the walks can be leisurely done in a morning to work up an appetite for lunch, or used as a convenient excuse to work off that lunch! Clear route directions are provided together with sketch maps and the guide is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket.

The Cat's Back - 5 miles
Sugar Loaf - 4 miles
The Blorenge - 6 miles
