The Geopark is set within the Brecon Beacons National Park in south Wales. It comprises the western half of the National Park, stretching from Llandovery in the north to the edge of Merthyr Tydfil in the south, from Llandeilo in the west to Brecon in the east.
The Heart of Wales Rail Line runs along the Towy Valley. The Geopark is within easy reach of the stations on this line at Llandovery, Llangadog, Llandeilo and Ammanford. There are stations too at Merthyr Tydfil at the southeast corner of the area whilst Abergavenny to the east lies on the Newport to Hereford line.
The A40 runs from Abergavenny to Brecon, then along the northern edge of the Geopark to Llandovery and Llandeilo. The A465 'Heads of the Valleys Road' runs along the southern edge of the Geopark from Merthyr Tydfil to the Vale of Neath. The western part of the Geopark is reached from the end of the M4 within 30 minutes.
The National Cycle Network is expanding all the time and there are several routes which link to Fforest Fawr Geopark. Do yourself and the environment a power of good - bike it!
