Pontsticill Reservoir (35909)

Event Overview

Join Mark on this walk around the stunning Pontsticill Reservoir, nestled in the southern ranges of the Brecon Beacons.

The Pontsticill Reservoir is situated in the southern edges of the Brecon Beacons, just north of Merthyr Tydfil. The surrounding hills offer fantastic views of some of the Brecon Beacons' highest peaks: Pen-y-Fan, Corn Ddu and Cribyn. Alongside the east bank of the reservoir runs middle section of the narrow gauge Brecon Mountain Railway.

We'll be starting from the car park near the Dolygaer Outdoor Education Centre, near the bridge that seperates the Pontsticill and Pentwyn Reservoir. We'll make our along the north and eastern edges of the Pontsticill Reservoir before going through a narrow tunnel under the railway line and up the hill side to Cwm Criban.

We'll make our way across the hills overlooking the reservoir and descend towards the dam at the reservoir's southern edge. Once we're done taking in the views and taking photos, we'll make our way through the woods on the western bank back to the car park.
