Day Walks in the Brecon Beacons features 20 circular routes between 6.8 and 16.5 miles (11km and 16.6km) in length, suitable for hill walkers of all abilities. Local author and walker Harri Roberts shares his favourite walks in the region, including circuits in the hills around Llangors Lake, the Taf Fechan Skyline and Pen y Fan, and the Llanbedr Horseshoe. The routes are split into four areas - Blorenge and The Black Mountains, The Brecon Beacons, Mynydd Llangatwg and Mynydd Llangynidr, Fforest Fawr and The Black Mountain. Each route features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance and navigation information, and refreshment stops and local information. The walks are illustrated with stunning photography by the author and outdoor photographer Adam Long.
Harri Roberts is a freelance writer, editor and translator based in Newport, Gwent. He has authored a number of Welsh walking guides, including an official guide to the Wales Coast Path (Tenby to Swansea section) and a guide to Day Walks in the Brecon Beacons (also published by Vertebrate). With his partner, Tracy, he runs an e-publishing company called camau (Welsh for ‘steps’). Together they have designed and published several electronic walking guides, including an end-to-end hike through Wales (O Fôn i Fynwy), a guide to the England Coast Path between Chepstow and Minehead, and a guide to the Via Algarviana, a long-distance trail across the Algarve region of Portugal.
