You continue on to the summit where there are fabulous views of the Severn Estuary, the Cotswoldsto the east, as far as theBrecon Beacons includingPen y FanandCorn Duto the west and theBristol Channelto the south. There are also great views over the nearby Usk River Valley and Abergavenny. On a clear day you could also see the Shropshire Hills and Somerset.
You descend towards Mynydd Llanwenarth, passing ancient medieval ditches before returning to the finish point, back at the car park.
If you'd like to continue your climbing in the area then the Skirrid Fawr walk also starts in Abergavenny. You could also pick up the splendid Brecon Beacons Way which runs through the area.
