Mountain rank by height: 135 out of 188 Height: 2,146ft | 654m Region: Brecon Beacons Grid ref: SO078189
Allt Lwyd is a short – but steep – walk from Talybont Reservoir. You can walk from Allt Lwyd across ridgeways to Pen Y Fan and tick off a few mountains along the way. There is a small car park directly below the main trail up from Talybont reservoir and it is only 1.5m from that car park to the summit – but you’ll ascend just over 1,500ft in that time.
The trail is easy to follow and pretty easy – I did this walk with my 8 year old daughter and, despite some complaining, she completed it without any assistance. Views are great all the way up and from the summit.
