Winter walks

Although the days are short, and you will need some decent clothing and footwear, winter walks can be the most scenic.

The light is often more varied, with low sun, misty valleys, sparkling water and changing foliage.  There are many lower level walks, if it is too cold and windy to head onto the high ridges.  An easy 9km stroll around the Usk reservoir is a bad-weather favourite.
