Length: 3.1 mi • Est. 1 h 57 m
A circular walk around and over Ysgyryd Fawr (The Skirrid), near Abergavenny. On a clear day, this gives beautiful views of the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons and surrounding borders countryside. This way of doing it means that you have a gentle downwards ridge walk with the Bristol Channel in the distance for the second half of the walk. The Brecon Beacons is a very remote/exposed area and it can be easy to lose your way, so remember the usual walking rules: be prepared with a paper map and compass as well as snacks/drinks and appropriate clothing/footwear. At certain times of the year (after wet weather), this walk can be very muddy and slippery in places, so it is recommended to wear stout boots and have walking poles in these conditions. You will need to negotiate a gate and some steps, but there are no stiles. There is no livestock on route. OS Explorer OL13 or Landranger 161. Show more

Park at Keeper’s Pond, look around you at the Black Mountains and then head left around the pond to begin your hike. Go over the bridge and right onto the trail. Hike downhill to the tramroad and make a right. Once you pass the tunnel, keep walking. You should be on the lower path and there should be a fence on your left. Eventually you will come to a gate. Turn right onto the public bridleway. You will come to Punchbowl, a large cwm and manmade lake. Walk left along the shore again staying on the lower path with the fenceline on your left. Climg gently out of the Punchbowl and at the cattle grid, turn right along the road. Follow the road until making a right turn at the Carn y Gorfydd. Continue on the path towards the summit of the Blorenge. Make a left at a small brick building and continue to the summit as the path turns from rocky to marshy. Make a right at a path junction to the Foxhunter car park and head back to where you started.Show more

Lovely walk but be prepared for some pretty hardcore hill climbing at the start. Saying that, once it leveled out it was a satisfying walk. Fantastic views from the top. Really beautiful views over hills and a valley.Show more

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.Show more
