A short walk up the Cribarth Ridge from the village of Abercraf in the Brecon Beacons. It may be a short walk and onlt boasts a high point of just over 400m, but it’s an interesting route that’s well doing nevertheless. There’s a visitor centre and facilities half way around at the Craig-y-nos Country Park.
