Location = In the eastern Brecon Beacons, at Talybont-on-Usk, easily reached from the A40 through the Usk Valley between Brecon and Abergavenny.

Description =  An atmospheric walk on the edge of the central Brecon Beacons, crossing the cultural divide between Mid & South Wales along an old tramroad linking the canal at Talybont on Usk to once important quarries near Trefil. The return journey involves a short stretch of cross-country walking followed by a scenic saunter along an ancient track. There are several alternative routes allowing you to make the walk shorter or longer – all of which are mentioned in the text.
