Back in July, several outdoor bloggers and writers were approached by the outdoor retailer Field And Trek to submit their favourite walk in the UK. I nearly did not bother until I remembered the fantastic waterfall walk I did back in 2011 in the Breacon Beacons. It is a forest river walk with a difference, as both rivers are crammed full of waterfalls, including Sgwd yr Eira which you can usually walk behind! Rivers in a forest with waterfalls, the chance to feel the spray on your face, some nice views as you drop down to Pontneddfechan, a convenient pub halfway and even a chance for a quick outdoor swim – it is my idea of the perfect walk! [I would also once again like to thank surfnslide, who originally shared the route on his blog and inspired me to pay the area a visit in the first place]
Field And Trek have put together this info-graphic detailing the route (using my Social Hiking map for photos and their locations), as well as all the other entries (click on the image to enlarge) – you can view the original at http://www.fieldandtrek.com/News/entryid/5645/Your-17-Walks-Our-Roundup
The entries cover lots of different parts of the country, from the south coast, to Snowdonia, to Yorkshire and up to Scotland – you can read all the entries at http://www.fieldandtrek.com/News/entryid/3451/Top-17-Walks-In-The-UK. Congratulations to every one who took part -it is a great selection of walks.
