Description
Waypoints (0)

This walk begins on the outskirts of Abergavenny where there is street parking on Chapel Lane and Pentre Road near to the start point on the junction of Pentre Road, Pentre Lane and Chain Road. From the start the walk skirts the south west slopes of Sugar Loaf on roads, along tracks, through woods and beside rivers to Llangenny before the ascent of Sugar Loaf begins. Steep at first and then easier after the tarmac road ends the ascent provides lovely views of the Brecon Beacons back to the west. After the summit attention turns to the east slopes of the mountain, to Abergavenny and its surrounding countryside, a spectacular view to enjoy on an easy walk down back to the starting point of the walk.

First to Review

Walked from Abergavenny town up past pen y pound and followed the roads up to the car park . It was definitely a steep climb , but totally worth it in the end .
