Couldn't help noticing that this walk was missing from the list. There's usually a great turn out and the different courses allow for varying abilities. There s a couple of great pubs on the way too ;). Although I have to admit that the last two times I have done this walk it has rained heavily...all part of the South Wales experience!

here's the event website: http://www.threepeakstrial.co.uk/

WalkieTalkie - welcome to the forum and thanks for posting that - it's certainly not a walk I've heard of before - but looks very interesting. I need to give South Wales another chance, after my ODP experience of 2007 :)

WT, it looks like this walk takes in part of the southern portion of the Cambrian Way. Does the
CW have any decent waymarking now or is it still a rely-on-your-compass walk? I'm thinking of this walk for next year and am trying to make a decision on where to walk.

Any current information would be greatly appreciated.

High Gregg,

I'm really sorry but I have never heard of the Cambrian way. I walk these hills often as they are so local and haven't noticed any signposting for the CW but then I suppose if I'm not looking for it then I'm unlikely to notice it...

This particular area is very easy to navigate around, the hills frame the town of Abergavenny and are always in sight.

The one negative aspect to the South Wales 3 peaks is the final 2 or 3 miles from the base of the Skirrid Fawr into Abergavenny. This involves walking along quite a busy road with sections where there is no pavement, quite a sad end to the day's walking!

Sorry to be so unhelpful Gregg, good luck with your decision!

Do you get a mixture of runners and walkers on any of the routes?
