This is a challenging walk with ascents and descents across open moorland and hopefully terrific views of the Brecon Beacons and surrounding areas. This walk commences by ascending the upgraded footpath to the summit of Pen-y-Fan. We then descend via the maintained footpath to the base of Cribyn and follow the path around its base to ascend Fan-y-Big. A ridge walk follows before we descend Craig-y-Fan Ddu to Blaen-y-Glyn car park for our lunch stop. Our afternoon walk proceeds along the disused railway line with views across the Talybont reservoir before ascending to Pen Rhiw-calch and onto Bryn Melyn overlook and a gradual descent to Llangynidr.
