What can I expect to see on The Four Waterfalls Walk?
Along this famous Waterfall walk you’ll discover the breathtaking and hidden Waterfall Country of the Brecon Beacons. Our trail follows a beautiful hidden river trail overlooking a steep flowing river canyon. Along the trail your guide will teach you all about the local area. Here you’ll learn how the waterfalls were formed and how they continue to shape the land.
On this walk through the forest we’ll first come upon the path down to Sgwd Clun Gwyn. Here the path steepens but is reassuringly very short. Thundering above you’ll see the Afon Mellte, flowing down, cascading and completely disappearing over the mighty cliff top edge.
As we return to the trail we take a path leading to the next 2 waterfalls where we’ll descend steep mud steps to the bottom of the black rocked canyon bottom. Here your guide will point out rock pools and formations. These have been formed and carved by the power of water over millennia. From here we’ll first see Sgwd Isaf Clun Gwyn, waterfall No2 and a horse shoe of cascading river water. This is the smallest of the 4 waterfalls but also regarded as the most charming.
We then continue along the trail to waterfall No3, the mighty Sgwd Yr Pannwr and the highest of the four waterfalls. After scrambling over a few rocks we look up to see this awe inspiring and huge waterfall. With the Afon Mellte river falling to the canyon floor, it never fails to impress, no matter how many times you visit.
Continuing along a small trail to our 4th final waterfall and certainly the most famous, Sgyd Yr Eira. This is the largest of the waterfalls and offers a great chance to walk behind its raging white cascade. Here you’ll have the opportunity to take some great selfies.!! Then after a short but steep walk out to the trail, we’ll return to the country lane. It’s then back to the car park and the finish to an amazing and unforgettable day.
