Rhayader to Rhyd-y-benwch (Plynlimon)

Distance: 24¼ miles (38.8km). High Point: 477m (1,575ft) Nantyhendy Hill.

The most exposed and mountainous section of the walk, it starts in small fields and woods but rises quickly into rugged hills with mountains rising ahead. There are drops to the rocky banks of the river and short stretches along narrow lanes and railway embankments, but the inevitable climb begins after about 10 miles at the Dernol Valley, drops to Llangurig, then climbs again up the slopes of Plynlimon.
