A must for the keen walker who wants to get the moste out of the area.
The emphasis on this book is shorter walks aimed at 'non-walkers', ie families, couples or anyone who fancies a stroll in most areas of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It also includes a few walks on the outskirts such as the Cat's Back walk up a section of the Black Mountains, a stroll along the banks of the Mon-Brec Canal from Goytre Wharf and, to the west, Lyn y Fan Fach near Llandeussant.
The walks are undoubtedly varied, ranging from flat and easy sections along canal towpaths to the most challenging walk of all, a 3-hour circular mountain walk up Pen y Fan to be rewarded by stunning views from the summit. With such a range, the book includes something for everyone - a short 1 hour stroll to the 3 hour circuit of Pen y Fan.
The book is laid out well with walks grouped by distance of easy walks up to 3 miles, 2.5-5 mile slightly harder walks and 4.5 miles or further which can also include steep ascents so there are going to be no surprises (or shocks) along the way. All of which are easily identified by a colour tab for quick reference and they can be selected from a map of the area followed by an 'at a glance' summary page of each route listing distance, time, height gain (important for those of us less keen on steep hills!) plus a short description of each.
The routes are clearly described with clear maps, landmarks along the way, attractive photography plus observation questions for children to develop and maintain their interest. At 18x11.5cm, it's also a convenient size to carry in a pocket or bag - no rucksacks needed on these routes!
For anyone either lucky enough to live in the Brecon Beacons are or just visiting to enjoy it for a short while, this is an excellent book to help casual walkers enjoy some of the best the area has to offer and it is suited to non-walkers seeking a gentle stroll without any unplanned challenges or unexpected steep hills.
A highly recommended book for non-serious walkers who want to enjoy a stroll in the Brecon Beacons.
Can't wait for my next trip to the Brecons to try out some of the other walks in the book.
