Starting point Starting point in Llanddeusant - Carmarthenshire

This is a brilliant linear trail in the Brecon Beacons National Park, incorporating many good viewpoints and one extra-special one. It begins in Carmarthenshire near the village of Llandeusant and ends in Powys in the Glyntawe valley, crossing a mountain ridge that beats Pen-y-Fan in my view, but because it's less accessible is less well-known.

Starting point Starting point in Llangadog - Carmarthenshire

This is the Beacons Way "the other way" from West to East. The prevailing wind comes from the west, so I prefer to have it at my back than in my face. However, there are a lot of North-South headings along this route and even an occasional westerly path. The scenery is fantastic either looking forward, back or to the side. A route to be enjoyed either way.
