Details

Cwm Rhaeadr is managed by Natural Resources Wales. For full details of the visitor facilities here (including trail lengths and grades) and information about any changes or temporary closures to trails or other facilities please go to the Natural Resources Wales website.

Cwm Rhaeadr means “valley of the waterfall” in Welsh and the valley is home to the highest waterfall in Carmarthenshire. You can catch a glimpse of the waterfall as it pours off the mountain on the Waterfall Walk.

There is also an accessible trail and a short mountain biking trail for experienced riders.

The woodland is made up of native broadleaved trees and non-native conifers including big Douglas fir trees which were planted in the 1940s. In spring, there are carpets of bluebells near the walking trails.

WALKING TRAILS

The walking trails are waymarked from start to finish.

The accessible trail is suitable for wheelchair users. It goes through the woodland and along a boardwalk. It passes by two ponds where dragonflies can be spotted in summer.

There are glimpses of the waterfall through the trees on the Waterfall Walk through the lower part of the valley. This moderate-graded circular trail crosses over a wooden bridge and follows the stream back to the car park.

Please read the information panel at the start of the trails before setting off.

Go to the Natural Resources Wales website for more details about these trails, and to find out what trail grades mean and if there are any temporary closures or diversions.
