About
The attraction consists of two circular walks. The longer of the two walks takes about 45 minutes to an hour. After seeing the famous unique 3 Bridges built one on top of the other you will walk through the woods and descend right down into the Rheidol gorge where you will have fantastic views of the 300ft Mynach waterfalls. The path is tough going and you will have to climb down Jacobs' Ladder which consists of 100 steps in one continuous flight. Don't worry there are handrails along the way. Once you have crossed over the little humped bridge at the bottom of the gorge you will need to climb back up the other side passing the Robbers' cave on the way. If this walk is too strenuous then chose the short walk which only takes 10 to 15 minutes. On this shorter walk, you will see the 3bridges built one on top of the other and the Punch Bowl where the river has created amazing pools in the rock. On both walks, there are many steep uneven steps and sensible shoes are recommended.
Duration: 1-2 hours

    Incredible Hike - Stunning Scenery
    This hike was amazing. My 12 year old son and I did it. I was only a little scared. Getting back down the steep rocks was the scariest but definitely not too bad. The trip was 100% worth it.

    Spectacular
    We visited on Easter Sunday with my daughter and our two granddaughters aged 9 & 5 . There are plenty of viewing points & places to sit on the way round. The steps are steep but my granddaughters managed without a problem as did my daughter who is 6 months pregnant we just took it steady as advised on the website. The falls are spectacular and the whole experience was well worth the money.😊
    Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm so glad that you and all your family enjoyed your Easter day out.

    Ok for dogs .
    We did the big walk and managed fine . We took the beagle as well but did put her shoes on as the ground is very stoney . She managed the walk absolutely fine and no issues . But we managed the walk in 50 mins and stopped 3 or 4 times to get our breath back on the walk up . Great views but go early in morning before it gets warm . After the walk we fell into the hotel at the top for cold drinks and a seat in the shade .

    Stunning waterfalls
    We visited as a family in half term, the free car park was very convenient and were lucky to get a space. We chose the waterfalls walk which was well worth the visit. The views over the valley are amazing, as well as the different platforms to see the waterfalls. The children loved the adventure of all the stairs and bridges. It took us an hour to do this walk, there is also a shorter route with less stairs that we might try next time to see the 3 bridges from the other side.

    Great walk
    Decided to come here for a walk after our holiday accommodation recommended it and we are so glad we did. We came with our two dogs and done the whole waterfall walk. It’s great fun, our dogs done well with all the steps. It is very steep on the way up but there is lots of benches to stop and rest if needs be. The views are gorgeous as well.

    It gets your heart pumping!
    You need a good amount of stamina to tackle this one! It is a beautiful hour or so circular walk. Most of the steps up and down are created from the rock and can be difficult - you must wear suitable shoes as the website mentions! Jacobs Ladder is a very steep 100 steps (I wouldn't recommend if you have bad knees) and if you have a largish dog, make sure you have a harness that you can hold on to. You do not want them launching down the steps suddenly. There are plenty of benches to sit down and get your breath back. We took lunch with us so we had an excuse to sit! At the end, you come out at a hotel where we had a much needed drink. It was a great experience.

    The place to be for nature lovers
    This was an amazing experience. Not for the light hearted or kids! It’s a fascinating walk but physically challenging (unless you’re in great shape- which I am not). However - they do offer a shorter walk so you still get to see the bridges which is around 10 minutes compared to approx 45 min walk into the gorge that I did. Worth the ache the next day!
    I'm so glad that you have had an amazing experience; thank you for visiting.

    Waterfall walk
    Such a great little walk. We did the longer walk (paid cash at the booth but they did take card, note in winter it’s turnstile entry). It took us about half an hour to do the walk but we do walk fast! There are lots of steep steps but lots of lovely view points. Less busy than I was expecting too!
    Thank you for visiting and for leaving us such a great review.

    Amazing views
    Absolutely amazing experience, we did the long walk and the views were incredible, well worth the entrance fee! We didn't rush and it took around an hour. It is a lot of steps and can be fairly strenuous at points, I had our toddler in a carrier on my back and didn't find it too difficult as we took it steady. Highly recommended especially in-between the steam train journeys.
    Thank you for your great review; I'm so glad that you had such a lovely day out.

    Suitable, strong footwear required.
    We have done many ‘challenging’ walks in the mountains of the Swiss Alps and I would say that at times this walk was of similar difficulty. The walk classed as 45 minutes has a lot of steps, some of which are extremely steep. I needed to grip the handrails at all times as there had been rain in the previous two days. We were rewarded with the roaring water down the waterfall. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk but noted that some people were struggling due to unsuitable footwear. Strong walking boots are required to protect ankle injuries on uneven ground and steep steps. To be fair the website does give a clear warning about the Nature Trail. However I did not see such a clear warning at the ticket desk on entry. Wear suitable shoes and you will enjoy the walk.
    Thank you for your great review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the waterfall. We do recommend that suitable footwear is worn and this is written in red on the map that we give each paying customer who visits as well as on all our advertising literature. I will make sure that there is a sign at the ticket desk too.

We were really lucky with the weather and it was a quiet day to visit. We took the walk very slowly and there were lots of opportunities to take fabulous pictures too. We spent over an hour on the trail & take your time to look at all of the viewing point (#11 is great) Wear sturdy footwear. We'll worth a visit.

Fine waterfalls. Wouldnt say anything more spectacular than can be seen for free elsewhere. Mad prices to see nature. Everything else closed being November
Would advise walking footwear - saw many people wearing slick trainers in November with leaf covered wet paths.

My little dog and i (retirement age) did this challenge on a fine day and enjoyed ourselves. Took us just under an hour with pauses for rest and photos. Don't underestimate the challenge because when they say 675 steps to negotiate they use the word steps lightly. In parts it was like rock climbing, with the benefit of a handrail. Equally steep going down and up. My dog is young and some of the 'steps' were a bit daunting, but with encouragement he coped. I carried him over the bridge at the bottom and final metal stairs. Stout non slip footwear essential. If cold wear grippy gloves because the handrail is mostly metal. The power of the falls is impressive and it gives a sense of achievement when completed.

Phenomenal rock formations and tri bridge. Photos will not do the place justice.
Walking boots are very much required and unfortunately, I didn't see the Pine Martin.
Take your time though, don't try and rush your visit.

Absolutely breathtaking and was so worth the trip! Went as a family, with 2 kids and a husky!

We were worried after reading reviews about it not being suitable for a big dog, but we went anyway and asked, as we have a 40kg BIG husky that pulls, and she said lots of people take big dogs down there, so we chanced it and managed it very well! Someone also mentioned that a medium sized dog would not fit through the turnstile, but we could not see how that is possible as our big dog fit through with no issues.

Steps were wet as it had rained earlier but they weren't too bad, maybe only a couple of steps were slippery. There are hand rails all the way to help you. Be aware there is a steep drop of steps, so not for the faint hearted. You do need to be fairly fit to come back up again.

There are benches here and there, so worth bringing a little picnic and enjoy the view. Wish we had!

Highly recommend. Worth the trip. It's beautiful! So glad we ignored the other reviews. Family and husky enjoyed it.

The free car park is jut down and opposite the entrance to the longer walk around Devils Bridge Falls. The shorter walk and toilet are just below the car park. The guy in the kiosk was really helpful and super friendly, explaining everything to us. I’d read the reviews before hand and was kind of dreading the return journey back up all those mentioned steps, but to be honest it was great!
There are a lot of uneven and deep steps both down and back up but if you wear some decent sturdy shoes, walking boots, trainers etc you should be fine. The views and the waterfall are stunning, well worth the visit. There are viewing platforms and benches along the wall so you can stop and rest or just enjoy the view.
When you complete the long walk you end up opposite a hotel where you can get a drink or something to eat. The steam railway and chocolate shop are to the right d as bf up the road.
So glad we visited.

We visited in a wet day and it was very slippery. Do not do this walk if you don’t like heights.
Stunning scenery and a great pub at the end for a well deserved glass of wine.
