Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Currenly walks in England can take place.  Walks in Scotland may take place with a maximum of 15 participants, but all participants (and walks) must stay within their own local authority area.  Walks in Wales will restart from the 26th of April, with a maximum of 30 participants.

General information

This is a lovely moderate 7.5 mile circular walk to the summit of Twmbarlwm through Cwmcarn Forest.  The climb to the top of Twmbarlwm is a strenuous climb, but the effort is rewarded with fantastic views across the Bristol Channel (weather permitting) from the top. We will take in the site of the hill fort on the top, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, before continuing along the ridgeway to eventually make a more gradual descent through the forest back to the Visitor Centre.  There will also be some great valley views (weather permitting).

This is an ideal time to walk in Cwmcarn Forest.  Parking is currently free of charge, and the Forest Drive is closed until March 2021 for refurbishment.  Please remember it could be cold and blowy on the tops at this time of year.

YOU MUST ADD YOUR NAME TO THE ATTENDANCE LIST IF YOU WISH TO ATTEND THIS EVENT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH CURENT COVID-19 REQUIREMENTS.
