This walk is perfect for anyone who has based themselves in the popular small town of Crickhowell on the east side of the Brecon Beacons National Park as the walk begins from the town centre. After leaving the town centre the walk crosses to the south side of the River Usk and continues to Llangattock where the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is followed for 1.5 miles before leaving the canal to follow a south west course over fields, lanes and a couple of road crossings to reach Craig y Castell. Now on upland with splendid views the walk heads south east to skirt the south side of the impressive cliff face of Craig y Cilau before leaving the high ground at Darren Cilau. Then its more fields, lanes and finally road back into Llangattock and the return to Crickhowell. There's lots of variety to this outstanding walk.
