Best Walking Routes in Brecon Beacons National Park

The Brecon Beacons National Park is home to the highest mountain trails in southern Britain, with shapely peaks and emerald green valleys packed with hundreds of spectacular hiking and walking trails.

The highest summits in the National Park can all be found in the Central Beacons, and are the prime targets for hillwalkers. Pen y Fan is the highest mountain at 886 metres, with a distinctive flat-topped summit and steep bluffs that sweep down its impressive north face. The nearby peaks of Corn Du and Cribyn are equally popular, formed from old red sandstone and crisscrossed by some of the best walking trails in Europe.

There are hillwalks for all ages and abilities, ranging from the 95-mile Beacons Way to small hills with huge summit views such as the 596-metre high Sugar Loaf. The Brecon Beacons is also one of the best places in Britain for stargazing, with the National Park’s low levels of light pollution earning it International Dark Sky Reserve status.

Located close to several major UK cities, including London, the Brecon Beacons is a wonderful place to explore on foot, bikes and horseback.
