Powys Ramblers: Elan Valley East Hike

A challenging 11 mile walk starting with an ascent above Pen y Garreg reservoir. We will then follow some high-level moorland which affords good views of Craig Coch reservoir before descending gradually to the mountain road before climbing again to the standing stone Maen Serth, which again offers fine views. Following this we have a long, gradual descent through the old golf links to the outskirts of Rhayader before a short climb to get wonderful views of Rhydoldog House. After this one more climb up to Moelfryn Mawr and then the final descent back to the cars.
