Aber Falls Circular

This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.

Starting from the road-bridge over the Afon Aber, this easy walk starts through woodland following the river upstream and shortly opening out into open countryside. A diversion is taken through the Coedydd Aber National Nature Reserve, from which you emerge with the falls in full view. It is then a short walk to the falls, where the water forms crystal-clear pools at its base. After sitting and taking in the site a small diversion is taken across the base of the mountains to Rhaeadr-fach, another waterfall about half a kilometre away. The return follows part of the outward route but can include a visit to the exhibition barn, where the valley's past is outlined.

Great Walk with fantastic views. It can be extended too for a longer and fabulous walk. A short, easy to watch video of the adventure is here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27TMSlngXbc Best Regards, Ian Adams

We can only reciprocate the other comments. It's also dog friendly (on leash because of livestock). Also there is a nice hardcore 'easy access' track all the way to the falls.

Stunning walk through great scenery, reminded us of the lake district. I would add however that this is a little nearer a moderate walk due to the terrain. No problems with navigation on this excellently written walk. 8/10.
