Just dropped by to take some shots,it's only a pound for adults and a pound for parking, once past the honesty box there's some well placed picnic tables and the trail is well signed but the way down is quite steep but worth it

Stunning walk to a beautiful riverview. Entrance is with an honesty box which we were initially concerned about as we didn't have the right money, but a gentleman came from a nearby house with change, so we were fine.

We were really looking forward to visiting but we're met by a disappointing walk and it was a complete waste of money

Luckily went when it was quiet and this place is just magical. Lovely little walk down, imagine it would be very slippy when wet so be careful. Took a picnic and sat in the sun, beautiful area.

I visited here during a stay in Betws-y-coed in December. The national park is quiet at this time of year, so I had the place to myself. It's well worth the 50p, especially considering visitors are sharing someone's private land! A short walk across sheep...More

It was very nice down in the Glen, beware, at this time of the year the steps down and rocks are very very slippy. The riverside walk on the way back was very pleasant. The 50p entry fee is well worth the walk down.
