Overview

A picturesque walk following the river Melte, passing under Sgwd yr Eira waterfall (wet uneven rocky ledge), and visiting several lovely waterfalls up to Cwm Porth. The walk then follows trackways to the river Nedd Fechan, returning along a wooded valley on the riverside path with more waterfalls.

Some steep slippery sections, and large boulders.
