very good and intresting place for family day out but no way to castle with the pram. still reconend, play ground and other atraction for walking kids

Really enjoyed this walk...took 2 hours approx ...changes in the beautiful contrast between green shady tracks - the walk between the pine trees, view into the quarry, the boggy forest and a nice country lane to finish off the walk. Loved it!

The Daear Ddu route is my preferred route, because it’s more challenging in terms of a steeper ascent than if you were to start at Plas y Brenin. You can do the hard part first and enjoy a leisurely descent. It’s also more enjoyable because of varied scenery. I enjoyed a picnic at the top on a clear day and the views are excellent. Lakes, woodland, mountains: perfect.

Our 1st All Trails walk which we needed to adapt a little as we were walking from home with Wales still in lockdown. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk in to the countryside. A real stress reliever. Great directions and easy to follow. Nice dry weather recently so no mud on the walk today. Some great scenery along the way and we will certainly look forward to more once we're able to travel again.

Great walk, my 6yo loved it! The uphill was fine, not too hard, and all in all it took us 3.5h with few rests and good packed lunch. A bit too much walk on the road though...

I liked this trail. Mostly ready going because you're already at the top of the mountain but with one or two bits to get the heart pumping. Good views of Caerphilly and, at one point, a great view of Cardiff and St Mellons. About 3.5-4 hours with a 10 year old in tow. Several lunch spots along the way.

Really poorly sign posted, you cannot complete this walk without having to check your phone at all times. Lovely views however and a great walk

We followed the start of this route and wandered off on our own little adventure to the peak. Please be aware that the second half of our walk is pretty strenuous and not to be taken lightly. The paths are not easy to find but the views are worth it.

Some overgrown trees but enjoyed the walk and the views.

Great trail, nice and green with beautiful views of the River Usk. Definitely a favourite in the area.

I loved the walk, especially after I bent a wheel and had the chance to push my bike all the way back, really enabled me to see the great views!
