As well as the main peaks of the Beacons, including Pen Y Fan, South Wales highest peak, the Epynt Way has just undergone a huge restoration with miles of walking very close by.
PEDAL THE PATHWAYS: There are cycle routes too for both mountain bikes and road cyclists, with bike hire available in Brecon and Hay on Wye, even Vespa hire available in Glasbury! Further into the National Park, the Visitor Centre often has star gazing events, as well as being a great place to plan a walk from.
