About the event
Here we will walk trails taking us through tranquil grassy gorges, along old drover's routes and past cascading waterfalls, taking in breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains of Mid Wales. The Forest is beautifully situated at the gateway of the Cambrian mountains, on the border of the Brecon Beacons National Park. There is a contrast of trees from the native oak, ash, beech and hazel of the original ancient forest, to the imported conifers, which have a beauty all of their own. The drove roads were once used to drive livestock through the wild mountains of mid-Wales en route to Smithfield Market in London. Nowadays you won't hear the bleating of sheep or the lowing of cattle, more likely the cry of a buzzard or red kite as they soar on the rising currents of air. On these tracks which run over hills and through wooded valleys, you may be lucky enough to see a variety of wild life, including red kites, honey buzzards, goshawks, many more birds and animals. You may come across the ivy-clad ruins of one of the old farms that once dotted this area.
Let Walk Hay lead you on an adventure through the trees and beyond.
