This is a circular walk
Starting from the village of Ystradfellte we have a short walk along a country lane before we pick up a footpath through some woods until we reach Porth yr Ogof. From here we follow the river and meet up with the Four Falls Trail. During the walk we visit Sgwd Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd y Pannwr, Sgwd Isaf Clun-Gwyn and Sgwd Eira before looping back to the start.
Please note the terrain is quite rocky with some short steep climbs down and up to the waterfalls so sturdy boots are recommended.
