Viewpoint, Mynydd Epynt

The viewpoint on Mynydd Epynt, near Llangammarch, is high on a hilltop with staggering views down the valley below. Definitely best visited on a clear day to make the most of the elevated position, probably best avoided in windy, rainy weather. The Epynt Way passes the viewpoint and makes for a great linear walk, perfect for little legs and off-road pushchairs, with the option of a longer walk (take a map)! Free parking, picnic benches and views, views, views.ย

Guide

We began with a picnic at the viewpoint. There are benches set away from the road and the epic view down the valley deserves some time.

We did a bit of exploring in-front of the viewpoint…

… and had a play on the huge rocks.

The Epynt Way, a 50 mile circular trail, is just across the road from the viewpoint car park. We crossed over the road and turned right, taking the track that runs next to the tarmac military road.

Then we just followed the track and enjoyed the views, turning around once we started heading downhill. You could easily go much further (although probably not with a pushchair).

Directions: Take the A483 to Garth and take the B4519 signposted to Upper Chapel. This road takes you up onto the hill, over a cattle grid. The viewpoint car park is on the right.

Happy wandering,
