This is the classic Pen y Fan loop starting from a different location. We take in the classic peaks of Corn Du, Pen y Fan and Cribyn and then the old roman road. You also get to the see the new ex reservoir lower Neuadd changes. This walk promises stunning views of South Wales highest peaks, valleys and reservoir. There may also be the odd waterfall included. Even though challenging, this walk is highly rewarding and offers a real sense of achievement.
