    This lovely little route packs a lot of punch for its size.

    Taking you alongside the choppy waters of the River Gamlan, past the magnificent Rhaeadr Ddu waterfalls and through the stunning Coed Ganllwyd National Nature Reserve, it is a delightful circuit to complete in under one hour.

    Rhaeadr Ddu, meaning 'Black Falls', are two waterfalls which cascade over 60 feet (18 meters). As you head to see the larger waterfall, it does get a little steeper—yet still manageable—in parts but the views from of the waterfall are magnificent, beautiful and utterly breathtaking.

    The superb waterside path this route follows is well-maintained, leisurely and suitable for all ages and abilities.

    It has plenty of places to stop and enjoy the scenery, too; meaning everybody can bask in the moss-covered ancient oak woodland and relax to the sounds of fresh water tumbling through it.
