Hiking Highlight (Segment)
komoot planned a hike.
November 8, 2018
If you are looking for a super-leisurely route that packs in magical scenery and a spectacular waterfall, you will be hard-pressed to do better than this glorious circuit.
At just over three miles long, this route follows a well-maintained, easy-going path that all ages and abilities will manage without issue.
With the magnificent Aber Falls ever present in distance, the route has lots of benches and places to stop, enabling you to take your time and soak in the glorious landscape.
The first sight en route is Aber Falls Hut Circle. These curious ruins have elements of both iron age and bronze age usage, as well as medieval occupation. From there, it is only a hop, skip and a jump to falls themselves.
At 120 feet (37 meters) high, you will be awe-struck in the presence of the mighty Aber Falls. Best seen after heavy rainfall, the water from the Afon Goch plunges down to earth creating an almighty spay. Take care, the rocks can get slippery.
