Hiking above Talybont-on-Usk

Your day will start and end in the little village of Talybont on Usk, we will leave the village using one historic route and return by another. It will be a day of extremes with one half of the day in the mountains with the second half watching wild foul on the canal.

As we climb gently into the mountains we will visit a herb garden and learn about the historic route we are following and how it would have been used in its day. With the weather on our side we will be rewarded with excellent views of the Brecon Beacons National Park at the summit of our peak, all the surrounding mountains and landmarks will be pointed out to you before we start our journey back down towards the Brecon and Monmouth Canal. We will then follow the canal back to the start keeping an eye out for wild life as we walk and learning about the history of the canal.

The hike is 16km (10 miles) long with a total ascent of 476m (1,560ft). The pace will always be leisurely with plenty of breaks for snacks, food and pictures.

Throughout the day I will impart local knowledge on various topics and draw your attention to amazing things that most will walk by without noticing.

All you will need is your hiking gear, a camera and a packed lunch to enjoy the day.
