A long loop contouring around the rim of Dyffryn Crawnon begins with a long but gentle climb from Llangyndir via the Chartists’ Cave to Trefil Quarry, returning via the Dolygaer, the Beacons Way and the summit of Tor y Foel.  River conditions permitting, the walk ends with a stroll along a beautiful stretch of the River Usk and the chance for a well-earned pint in the Red Lion.
Directions to Start
Allow 30 mins from CRiC. From the front of CRiC take A40 towards Brecon and turn left opposite the Shell petrol station. Drive over Crickhowell’s river bridge and turn right follow this road for 4 miles. As you enter Llangynidr, you will pass signs on the left for the Red Lion and then a bus shelter, also on the left. Turn immediately left into the car park which is opposite the village hall. No charge.
