Black Mountain (yes, singular, not plural) is the name of the westernmost range of the Brecon Beacons national park. The other two being the Black mountains (plural this time) in the east and along the English border. While the Brecon Beacons range, from where the national park takes its name and home to the highest mountain in south Wales (Pen Y Fan), sits between the two ‘black’ ranges.
Access into the Black mountain is about an hour from here, so I’ve only just begun to explore the area in the last weeks. They are much more rugged and isolated that the Black MountainS here in my backyard, so I’m looking forward to spending more time out there. There is also a roughly 100 mile long trail called the Beacons Way which runs east to west across the park which has also caught my attention for some time in the future.
