Why You Must Visit The Brecon Beacons, The Four Waterfalls Trail – Places To See In Wales Ep 3

Waterfall country in the beautifully rugged landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales. Here’s another ‘can’t miss’ destination when you visit Wales, the Four Waterfalls trail near the village of Ystradfellte, Aberdare.

Chasing waterfalls – starting from the car park (£4) – look for either Cwm Porth car park or Four Falls Waterfall Hike Car Park 2 the trail takes you past 4 beautiful waterfalls and also an entrance to cave.

I incorrectly thought the trail was about 3 to 4 miles but it is actually 5.5 miles and even a bit longer if you explore the banks alongside the #waterfalls.

The trail leads to Sgwd Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd Isaf Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd y Pannwr and Sgwd-yr-Eira on the River Mellte in the heart of waterfall country. I started at the waterfall which is furthest away, Sgwd-yr-Eira and worked backwards.

The four waterfalls:

1:50 Sgwd-yr-Eira

2:43 Sgwd y Pannwr

3:16 Sgwd Isaf Clun-Gwyn

4:50 Sgwd Clun-Gwyn

As you can see the Welsh word for waterfall is sgwd.

The area is also popular with cavers, the car park is above the entrance to the Porth yr Ogof cave system where the Afon Mellte enter Wales’s largest cave entrance. 

This is episode 3 of our series Places To See In Wales where we explore a range of places from the well known to the unusual, but all worth a trip when you #VisitWales
