Help connect Nant-Ddu

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Nant-Ddu’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

As people have said, the first part of the walk is rather boggy, a bit overgrown in parts, and you need a decent pair of walking boots....

The walk was very varied, starting with some boggy terrain as you climb up from Nant Ddu, with a steep ascent to Pen y Ban and some excellent views, and a pleasant descent back into Brecon....

We were led in this walk by the estimable Nia, without whom I think I might have had more difficulty navigating this first part. Personally I found the downhill stretch more taxing as it was a long slow slog down hill followed by a walk along a country lane into town....

Tom Morris

Walk this route

Overall an enjoyable walk, given 4 instead of 5 stars because of the beginning, along an extremely busy and dangerous section of the A470 - be sure to keep to the verge and keep your wits about you, and also because this route may not be safe in poor weather....

I ran this route in reverse, it follows some classic paths that cut across the top of the Beacons....

it then joins a nice easy to follow road however with about 4 miles to go the route headed into some very dense overgrown woodland and I had to find another path as I could no longer stay on the one suggested....

The path around the base of Fan Fawr is narrow, steep and in places slippery and from Fan Fawr to Fan Frynych quite boggy....
