Sugar Loaf Mountain – Hike up the southernmost summit peaks of the Black Mountains in Wales

Family time in Bristol turns into an impromptu hike. Sugar Loaf mountain is northwest of Abergavenny and a part of the Black Mountains. I had heard of it and my brother in-law had climbed it and so, we decided to park up in a little village called Llangenny in the valley and hike up.

Sugar Loaf is the southernmost summit peaks of the Black Mountains. The summit sits at 1,955 feet (596 metres) and is very picturesque all the way. It was cold and damp, but the uphill workout kept me warm. I would definitely recommend this hike, however, it is not suitable for very young children, pushchairs, or anyone with mobility concerns. An unforgettable 5 mile hike there and back.
