Brecon Beacons National Park family walks you can reach by bus
Walks specially designed to tie in with bus routes, so you can catch the bus back home after your efforts – there’s walks for families and some strenuous mountain hikes too.
There aren’t many better places than the Brecon Beacons National Park to enjoy walking. Beautiful hills, lush valleys, staggering views, clean air: we’ve got it all. Now we’re making it easier than ever for you to enjoy the countryside without getting in a car at all, as we’ve written a series of walks which start and/or finish on bus routes. Some of them are quite strenuous, some just a gentle stroll but all the details you need are here. The walks are also available as free booklets which you can get from our Tourist Information Centres.
If you love walking and want to reduce your impact on the environment, Car Free Walks is a website dedicated to offering free and easy guides for walks through the UK that are accessible via public transport.
All the walks are meant to be used with the appropriate OS map and this is how we’ve graded them:
Access for all - level, usually surfaced paths with no stiles or obstacles, suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Easy - an easy pace suitable for novice walkers.
Moderate - a steady pace but some ascent involved.
Energetic - some steep ascents, good for improving fitness.
Strenuous - longer walks with several steep ascents requiring a good level of fitness.
However, only you can decide if the distance and climb are suitable for you given the time you have and what the weather’s like. Remember it can get wetter and colder higher up, even during the summer so make sure you have the right sort of clothing and footwear.
