On Saturday our hike will start at the Storey Arms Centre (5mins drive from our accommodation).  Our route will then go uphill to Corn Du (873m) – once on the ridge, more 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.  Passing the dam 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.  After the walk we will return to the accommodation for showers, before heading into town for our evening meal.

On Sunday we will be doing the popular Waterfalls walk 10miles.  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).
