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.

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.
About 1 km (roughly 1 miles) from 6 OS Grid: SH656728
Back to the town for the bus home.

Aber Falls is a beautiful spot. I have been here several times. You can also finish this walk with a stroll along the North Wales coast - best recommended with a bag of chips.
