Walk Details

This circular walk from Hay town takes you up westwards above the town through a lovely wooded area with sometimes a great view of the beacons, depending on the clouds! We then see a Neolithic site before heading down hill again across common land, finally skirting the eastern side of the ancient settlement. A moderately strenuous walk, with great views to make the climb worth it! As long as you are of reasonable health and fitness level, you should be fine, as we will walk at a steady pace, resting when needed, no one will get left behind! Children would be welcome on this walk, as long as you are confident they can walk the distance. There will be stiles, so just bear that in mind, although I will be helping people over them. I will have activity sheets for the kids and we may even have a photography competition! (maximum 12 people). All walk lengths & timescales given are approximate, as there are variable factors such as pace of the group, weather considerations, & differing abilities of walkers. The walk leader will may make slight changes to the route on the day in response to any of these factors. Dogs unfortunately can't come with us sadly, but if you would like to come and need a 'dog-sitter' do get in contact and I can put you in touch with a doggy day care facility. We will walk whatever the weather unless there is ice or snow underfoot, very strong winds, thunder or severe flooding, in which case a full refund will be issued. You will need shoes/boots with a good tread, (wellies are fine as long as you have a tread on the bottom). Make sure you bring water/hot drink possibly if its cold, a waterproof jacket, a backpack is preferable to a handbag or shoulder bag, and if we are walking at lunchtime, don't forget your lunch!
