Spooky Halloween Week.
Starting at 10.00 a.m. at World Heritage Centre.
“Mynydd Y Garn Fawr” Guided walk
A fairly strenuous walk of about 9.5 km (6 miles), suitable for older children, but not recommended for young children or people with limited mobility.
The walk climbs past old coal and iron workings to Keeper’s Pond and the Foxhunter Car Park before following the ridge of Mynydd y Garn Fawr, passing the Bronze-Age cairn Carn y Defaid and eventually descending to join the Llanofer Road, from which we descend to follow Afon Llwyd and thence back to the World Heritage Centre.
There are some steep ascents (and descents), and some parts can be quite muddy in wet weather, but on the whole it’s walkable with appropriate footwear etc.
28th – 31st October.
