Photos of Rhondda Nature Trips Trails

Great route with wonderful views and spectacularly varied terrain. We gave ourselves a four-hour weather window and we almost made it. Using the route here (which has been carefully adjusted to avoid some of Ordnance Survey's better practical jokes) it will be possible to complete the route in much less time than that. The rivers were both very high and the falls were considerably larger and more forceful that normal. We just got wetter than otherwise we might. Our photos were also notable by the amount of brown and orange in the falls which are usually just sparkly white. The descent into Criag y Ddinas is excellent. So is crossing the river behind the water of the Sgwd yr Elra waterfall. Best bit is probably the rooty/rocky section from the footbridge (the northernmost point of the route) and the waterfall crossing. I'd love to do this again on a dry day with more typical river levels!
