Swansea Ramblers Walk


Coach trip to Crickhowell
- To walk up Table Mountain

29th August 2015

Leader: Zetta Flew




We hired a coach to take us to the picturesque town of Crickhowell where 39 of us ascended to the top of Table Mountain for some fantastic views.  The weather was lovely and everyone had an enjoyable day out.  Many in our party had not walked up a mountain before so the gentle 5 mile stroll introduced them to an accessible mountain.  Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities from the long strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker to the short, easy lowland walks where maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people.  If you'd like to try a walk then do come along and find out what all this Swansea Walking in the great outdoors is all about.  It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.  If you get the bug and want to walk or stroll regularly then you can also become a member.  Just ask us about the walks and social events we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.
