From the car park return to the road and turn R. At the next junction turn L then L again, leaving the road and making your way to the trig point on Fan Nedd (2.4 miles/3.8km). Turn R down the ridge to a cairn then L on a small path north-west to reach a larger track at SN 902197 (3.7 miles/6km). Turn L onto the track and follow it across Fforest Fawr to a track junction at SN 873169 (6.5 miles/10.5km). Bear L and follow the dismantled tramway in roughly the same direction to join the Beacons Way at SN 860156 (7.8 miles/12.5km). Turn L onto the Beacons Way, following it as it curves R and heads south-east to a path junction at the corner of some woodland (SN 907143, 11.3 miles/18.2km). Turn L, still on the Beacons Way, and run north-east along the course of an old Roman Road, through some woodland and back to the road. Turn R here to return to the start.
