8.30am 1 Boot: Pen Y Fan by other means, bbq maybe! (Joint Walk)

Event Date: Sun 17 June 2018
Event Time: 8.30am

7.5 miles

This is a pretty easy walk up Pen Y Fan. It starts from the north, and can be a quieter route than approaching from the south. I’ve classed it as 1 boot, but it’s more like 1.5 boot. It’s 4-5 hours and there’s a steep climb near the top. About 600m ascending. Plenty of chances for breaks and time to take in the tremendous scenery!

Weather permitting, we can opt for a bbq at the end! There is time to stop at shop on way. Or we can drop into a pub. Should be home by about 7.30.

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,
