Crychan Forest and Halfway Forest


Crychan Forest Trails for walkers, cyclist, horse riders and carriage drivers.

The Crychan Forest Association works with the Natural Resources Wales (formally Forestry Commission) to promote access to Crychan and Halfway Forests near Llandovery Carmarthenshire. South West Wales near the Brecon Beacons.

We have installed nearly 200 numbered waymarker posts and published walking trails, family forestry cycle trails and horse riding trails. These individual trails with map are available to download from this website.

Cefn Farm Walk

A moderate 2.5 mile walk in Crychan Forest from the Cefn Farm car park.

You’ll pass the ruins of the old 19th century farmhouse Glyn Moch before dropping down to the stream in Cwm Dulas. Try to imagine pigs rooting about here – as Glyn Moch means ‘valley of pigs’. Easy tracks return you to the start at Cefn Farm.
