The West Brecon Beacons offer some truly spectacular views from wild peaks to sweeping valleys, that open out to the flat lowlands with their farms and views that go on forever. If you are really lucky the view will still be dominated by a snow capped Black Mountain. With or without the snow that is still an impressive sight.
The main joy is actually getting to the location, which is surprisingly easy [from Bristol it was only 4 or 5 different roads]. You go from the urban sprawl, into increasingly smaller villages and then, once you cross the cattle grids, you enter a wild wonderland that feels like you have left civilisation behind you. Once you are at the top of the peaks, which is the first third of the walk, you will see for miles and miles across the mountains and then in the valley, the final third of the walk, you get to see the route you have just done and enjoy it all from a new perspective. Which will be lovely until you see the route back up to the car park that is half way back up the mountain.
