Brecon Beacons
Walking Guide and Walks

The range of mountains named the Brecon Beacons lie within the Brecon Beacons (Bannau Brycheiniog) National Park, which is a little confusing. Pen y Fan (886 m.) is the higherst summit in the range and is very popular with walkers. Most of the summits in this range have steep escarpments generally facing a northerly direction and lie in the Western and Central areas of the National Park. Another point of confusion is there are two Black Mountains one in the Brecon Beacons range with the other lying to the east.
