Summary
For this hiking weekend we will depart on Friday after work and make our way to the Brecon Beacons (car sharing will be available for those that need it and options will be announced nearer the time).  We will be visiting the spectacular Brecon Beacons (Pen y Fan circular) and the popular Waterfalls Walk.  An ideal location for a summer weekend away, we have accommodation booked at YHA Brecon Beacons (Libanus).  This cosy 19th Century farmhouse, with access to some of the best walking routes in Wales, is perfect for us.  Step out through the front door and be greeted by breath-taking views towards Pen y Fan – the highest mountain peak in South Wales – ideal for an adventure walking weekend.  All bedding is provided, but you will need to bring a towel and toiletries.  The hostel features a comfortable lounge with plenty of sofas and arm chairs, great self-catering facilities and a handy drying room for muddy clothes.  In the kitchen you find fridges, a freezer, a microwave, a cooker, a kettle and toaster, plus lots of pots, pans, cutlery and crockery.

On Saturday our 22Km (14 miles) hike will start at the accommodation and head south along Taff Trail up to Storey Arms car park.   Our route will then go uphill to Corn Du (873m) – once on the ridge, our summits will quickly follow (Pen y Fan 886m – the highest in the National Park and Cribyn 795m) we then decent into the valley and head south until we reach Lower Neuadd Reservoir.  Stopping at the reservoir for lunch, we then go uphill to gain the ridge again – heading north back towards Corn Du and then descending before returning back to the car park then our route takes us north and back to the accommodation.  We then have time for showers, before our evening meal which is a YHA Supper Club Meal (vegetarian option is available).  Self-catering is also available for those who choose this option.

On Sunday, after breakfast, we will be doing the popular Waterfalls walk 13Km (8 miles).  The start is approx 30 mins drive from the accommodation.  The route passes through woodland as it follows 2 different rivers.  There are many photographic opportunities of the various waterfalls including 2 that you can walk behind (Sgwd Gwladus and Sgwd yr Eira).  We plan to finish around 4pm and anticipate being back in London by approx 8pm.
