The Llangammarch Wells Walking Guide was written originally by Jane Griffiths and has been revised and updated by Richard and Caroline Mears. Illustrations are by Lynn Phennah and Linda Hartley of the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority.
The booklet containing 8 walks is available from the Post Office in Llangammarch for £3. The proceeds go to the Alexandra Hall.
Walk 1 is included on this site to give a taster of what is in the booklet.
The walks are of different lengths and range from easy/moderate to those that include a strenuous climb.

Llanwrtyd Wells has a long history of organising walking events and welcoming walkers. The beautiful Cambrian mountain environment provides a dramatic and peaceful place to walk and experience nature, and in 2018 the town acquired the status of ‘Llanwrtyd Wells Walkers are Welcome’.
The Neuadd Arms and the Heritage and Arts Centre have leaflets to help you navigate the trails. These include short walks such as along the River Irfon and road to the ancient St David’s Church, or further afield exploring the Abergwesyn valley or the Doethie Valley. With a few days’ notice the Neuadd Arms can arrange longer guided walks for groups.
Three Walking Groups hold regular weekly walks. We often use the long-distance Heart of Wales Line Trail using the train to start and finish. There are walking groups catering for long and short distances and for all abilities. Visitors are welcome to join these.
The Epynt Way -
Epynt Way Association
If you are looking for a different walking route or ride on your horse, and want to get away from the crowds on Pen y fan, why not try the Epynt Way. The terrain is varied, from wooded valleys to high moorland, and offers spectacular views.
This permissive bridle path is entirely on land controlled by the Ministry of Defence and incorporates the Sennybridge Training Area. The Epynt Way follows a route close to the boundary and is about 50 miles long. Users of the Epynt Way are entirely safe, provided they follow the designated route marked by posts. Although red flags fly at points on the range, the public can walk on the Epynt Way at any time. Walkers, horse riders and cyclists are welcome.
