The Four Falls Trail

CF44 9JF, Gwaun Hepste

This spectacular Four Falls walk is approximately 4 miles long, starting at the Cwm Porth car park at the River Mellte. Be sure you visit the cave before you set off.

The walk itself, which is equally stunning whether raining or sunny, takes in some beautiful views of the Brecon Beacons National Park on a partial loop. The waterfalls are Sgwd Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd Isaf Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd y Pannwr and, definitely saving the most awesome until last, Swgd yr Eira. Those brave enough can walk behind the cascades (slippery).

Not suitable for wheelchairs. Dogs welcome.
