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.

    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 .

    We got away with our lives - Take Crampons and Ropes
    Dangerous steep unmaintained walkways down to bottom of waterfalls and then you have to get back up again on the other side of the gorge. I am 76 and needed to be 26. When we were young these places were free to visit. Now you pay to visit and some nice turnstiles have been added to the venue - not much else has changed from what I could see.
    We advertise this as a challenging walk but it is definitely not unmaintained. There are railings on both sides of the path and steps. You would be daft to wear crampons on slate steps so your comment is a little over the top. This has been a paid tourist attraction since before the top bridge was installed in 1901. The new modern turnstiles have replaced the very old and rusty Victorian ones. We have also recently enhanced the attraction in many ways including providing a tarmac path for wheelchair users and pushchairs.

    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.

    Challenging at points but definitely worth it!
    We visited whilst on holiday this week (4 adults and 4 children aged 2 - 8) and I would suggest doing your research before arrival. The lady on the ticket desk helpfully advised us that certain points of the walk might be slippery due to the wet weather but sensible walking shoes are a must! It is advertised as a 45 minute walk but with the little legs in our group it took us over an hour with the smallest one needing to be carried at a few points. The scenery was beautiful however and certainly worth the steep climb!

    A challenge but fun
    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.

    Alright waterfalls
    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.

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.
