Date - Saturday 1st June

Start time - 9.30am start from the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre

Difficulty - Moderate to hard

End time - 15.00 approx

Distance - 10 miles

Route -  Canal towards Newport golf course then ascent towards Twmbarlwm.  The trek is fairly steep in places and definately gets the heart rate going.  Walking along the ridge the 360 views are spectacular. Drop down into Blaen Bran community woodland and past the reservoir for a rest at the Queen Inn. Everyone will be able to get a vehicle back to the centre.

Clothing - Sturdy walking shoes a must as uneven terrain and you will have to concentrate on your foot placement throughout the ridge. Sticks are helpful for balance. There is no shade along the ridge so hats, sun cream / waterproofs, plenty of water and snacks. 

For this walk you do need to be of a moderate fitness level, there are no get out stops along the way. Wildlife and bird life is in abundance along with biting insects!! Our average pace on walks is roughly 2.5 miles per hour.
