Start of the walk.
There's a single arch bridge spanning the Afon (river) Rhaeadr-fawr; turn through a gate to follow the riverside path through woodland, which leads to a wooden footbrige. Go through a gate onto the main track up the valley.
There is a model view of the walk, examples of trees in the area and a cutaway section of a tree to show its rings. Afterwards, stay on the main path.
This shows the various stages in charcoal production. Stay on the main path.
Archeologists excavating here found the foundations of an habitation.
Very accessable - feel the spray if it has rained heavily before your visit. Rest, have a picnic perhaps, before re-tracing your steps to the start.
Back to the town for the bus home.
