Garn Goch is one of the largest iron age hill forts in Wales (it’s 2 in fact) and sits above the small village of Bethlehem, near Llandeilo.

The walls would have been 30ft high and you can still see the remains of the stones, cairns and the shape of the fort as you walk around.

The heath and bog habitat is full of interesting flora and fauna, including larks, red kites, buzzards, grazing ponies, cotton grass and heather, depending on the season.

The walking route starts at the car park, takes in the monument to Gwynfor Evans, and goes right across both forts offering glorious views over the Towy Valley.

It then climbs part of the Beacons Way to below Trichrug Cairn and moves along an old ridge path, over walls and stiles, keeping the breathtaking views in sight.

The descent back to the car park is via lovely woodland, fields and country lanes abundant with trees, hedgerows and wildflowers in Spring and Summer.

This walk has several stiles and some long hills
