If you are looking for a different walking route or ride on your horse, and want to get away from the crowds on Pen y fan, why not try the Epynt Way. The terrain is varied, from wooded valleys to high moorland, and offers spectacular views.
This permissive bridle path is entirely on land controlled by the Ministry of Defence and incorporates the Sennybridge Training Area. The Epynt Way follows a route close to the boundary and is about 50 miles long. Users of the Epynt Way are entirely safe, provided they follow the designated route marked by posts. Although red flags fly at points on the range, the public can walk on the Epynt Way at any time. Walkers, horse riders and cyclists are welcome.
The Epynt Way Association is comprised of volunteers who monitor the route and report any damage or safety issues to the MOD. The route is divided into sections and each section is monitored by one or two volunteers.
The Association is looking for new members. If you are reasonably fit, like walking and have some free time, please contact the association. Anyone with good computer skills would be particularly welcome to help with updating the website.
