Splendid walk few cars when we arrived at 0930 rammed at midday great walk. Good quality paths and great views. Enhanced by glorious sunshine. Shame that like much of north Wales spoiled by litter more »
One of the most beautiful places in the whole of the UK I've visited, The roughly 90 minute walk to the falls is worth it completely! Great for hiking and dog walking, And with good facilities from the car park to the exhibition. Truly a must visit place when visiting Wales.
Well worth the walk. Save yourself a couple of quid park just off the duel carriage way for free. Then walk the long way (up the side of the valley). Although this does involve some very steep climbs at the start. The views from the top of the valley are worth the walk alone and you really feel you've earned it when you get there. There were also very few people on this route.
