A circular bridleway that follows on or near to the boundary of the Ministry of Defence’s Sennybridge Training Area (SENTA), a danger area closed to the public under military by laws, except for the Epynt Way permissive bridleway which is normally open to walkers, horse riders and cyclists but any temporary safety restrictions must be observed. Being in an upland area it contains steep and boggy sections that require extra care. The route is waymarked throughout with 1.2 metre posts and finger posts at junctions with external paths.

Details from MOD website below, with route descriptions and maps.

The uplands of the Epynt Plateau lie between the Brecon Beacons to the South and the Cambrian Mountains to the North. Mynydd Epynt is a wild plateau covered largely by blanket bog and grass, cut by streams valleys with woodland and meadows that flow south to the River Usk. The area became famous as the breeding ground for Welsh Cobs - the name Epynt originating from an ancient expression meaning "haunt of horse".
