The National Park is full of wonderful reserves, woodlands and grasslands where you and the family to enjoy the wonders of nature.
One of our most popular places for a waterside picnic or a gentle stroll in pleasant, leafy surroundings is Craig-y-Nos Country Park.
We have also several National Nature Reserves that are delightful to explore. They include Craig-y-Cilau near Crickhowell, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad southwest of Brecon and the Brecknock Wildlife Trust's Pwll-yr-Wrach near Talgarth.
There are spectacular beechwoods at Cwm Clydach and beautiful mixed woods of lime, oak and hazel coppice at Coed-y-Cerrig, which is always busy with butterflies in summer.
Wherever you go, remember to follow the Countryside Code and do your best to avoid disturbing any wildlife, plants or natural features.
