Tips

  • Alex Foxfield

    The Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls are a number of beautiful cascades where the Nant Bwrefwr and the infant Afon Caerfanell spill from the eastern end of the Central Beacons massif. Although beautiful, the gradients here are steep, so exploring the tumbling streams can be strenuous.

  • Enjoy this 4.7-km loop trail near Tredegar, Blaenau Gwent. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 1 h 35 min to complete. This trail is great for birding, hiking, and walking.
