Around Talybont Reservoir (in the reverse direction)
2 people attending
8 places left
We will loop around the beautiful Talybont Reservoir taking in the surround countryside and views. There are a variety of waterfalls at the start and the finish. Depending on the weather there will be some stunning views of Pen y Fan, Talybont reservoir and the Welsh valleys. We start with a steep climb, but once at the top of this climb the ascents for the rest of the day are a lot easier. We follow the Beacon Way for significant parts of the walk. Taking in Talybont forest, a disused rail line and some of the Taff Trail.
Please bring plenty of food and 2 litres of water
