Location In the Black Mountains section of Brecon Beacons National Park in south-central Wales.
Access Numerous hiking opportunities including the Monmouth & Breconshire Canal and foot paths in Black Mountains of Brecon Beacons National Park. We stayed at the Bridge End Inn in the town of Crickhowell at the end of the 17th century stone bridge.

We had an all-day hike to Table Mountain (400m) (Crug Hywel, which gives Crickhowell its name), then to Pen Cerrig-calch (700m) and Pen Allt-mawr (720m). We returned cross country through the beautiful Cwm Banw walley.

  We were amazed by (1) the number of sheep, (2) the remoteness (we didn't see any other people during the entire hike), and (3) the wind.
