08:45 2 Boot: Hills not Mountains #2: Llangors with altitude (20s & 30s)

Event Date: Sun 29 July 2018
Event Time: 08:45

11 miles

Second of the Hills not Mountains series aimed at enjoying the stunning scenery of
the Brecon Beacons National Park without climbing any actual mountains. Starting from Llangors lake we will climb two seperate ridge lines on the western edge of the Black Mountains and although the pace will be gentle there are some steep ascents and descents. Highest point is 515m.

Although not a mountain the hills are still fairly high and exposed, so even in sunny weather please bring adequate 4 season protection i.e. plenty of water, sunscreen, warm clothes and waterproofs!

Bring a packed lunch. Pub to finish.

About Brunel Walking Group

Thanks for visiting us! Brunel Walking Group is for young(ish) people in the Bristol and Bath area who love the countryside and like to get outside on a weekend.

What is Brunel Walking Group?

Brunel is a thriving group with more than 400 members. All of our walk leaders and committee members are volunteers, dedicated to sharing our fantastic countryside with others.  Read more on our FAQs page

How do I join the walk?

There is no need to sign up to join a walk, just turn up at the meeting point where we will share lifts to the start of the walk.  You’re very welcome to try out 1 or 2 walks before you join, but we do insist that after that you join the Brunel Walking Group.  It’s OK if you don’t drive – we normally have enough drivers who are able to give lifts, but drivers often appreciate it when a voluntary contribution is made by passengers towards their costs.

How do I know what to bring? And am I fit enough?

We provide a full recommended kit list here.  Please do bring water, a rainproof jacket, walking trousers (or similar) and walking shoes/boots – avoid jeans and trainers.

Walks are graded as either 1 boot, 2 boot or 3 boot.  Read more about choosing the right walk for your fitness level here,
