Take paths less trodden - the Three Pens with a difference! After a gentle start along the River Usk, we ascend into Cwm Mawr and then take a direct line up the Bryniog ridge, which climbs in a series of sculpted steps left by the last Ice Age to reach Pen Gloch-y-pibwr; sometimes on paths, sometimes not, but nothing extreme. Main trails to Pen Allt-mawr and Pen Cerrig-calch, then down by lovely grass sheep tracks to Table Mountain and Cwm Cumbeth. Great views and quiet trails throughout.
