My wife and I sopped here on our way back fomr the Llyn Peninsular. We visited the water falls. The walk started in the National Trust Car Park and continues over the road up the side of the village hall. This was a stunning walk and so easily accessed. We'd highly recommend stopping and doing the walk that takes about an hour/ hour and a half. Just simply stunning.

Visited here this afternoon with my husband & nearly 10 year old. Parking is free & there a public toilets, and a large leaflets with the routes to follow. Various colours depending on how far you like to trek. We followed the blue route & the signs were easy to follow. The waterfalls were just beautiful all the way up, and as we have had torrential rain in this area for the last 36 hours the falls were running really fast. There is some steep inclines we got the legs working but my 9 year old managed it fine. We wore wellies as it’s very wet & boggy in places but good waterproof walking boots would work better I’m sure. Would definitely like to visit here again & try the other trails.

The entire walk is fairly demanding and takes about 3 hours to complete the 3.1/2 miles, but there are dramatic sights of the Rhaeadr Ddu Falls within a short distance of the start of the walk from the car park at the lovely friendly close-knit village of Ganllwyd. We would however recommend that care is taken, especially with children, as there are steep cliffs above the river and the walk can be quite slippery after rainfall, which is the time to see the falls at their best. It's a fantastic sight when the river is in flood. A substantial part of the walk is through a natural forest area, so views are limited at times but there are fine views of Coed y Brenin from the Garn Mountain later, making it really worth the effort.

We found this on the National Trust Website when looking for some nice scenery near Snowdonia avoiding the busy areas and it did not disappoint. Lovely walk took about 2 hours, kids loved it, didn’t moan once and the waterfalls are just beautiful. Totally free of charge. Really great morning.

Wonderful place.This is a great waterside walk. Large open spaces of forest and magnificent Rhaeadr Ddu waterfalls.Take care on this section as the rocks can be slippery. Old trees, waterfalls and birdsong - doesn't get any better than this. Lovely forests and waterfalls plus amazing views. Nature at his best !!!
