Well worth the time to walk the four waterfalls - the steps down to the Waterfall of Snow 170 are steep but so worth it - great to be able to walk behind the water. Quite steep in places need good walking shoes.

We had a lovely walk around the four waterfalls. It's quite slippery and muddy in places going down to the waterfalls and harder coming back up! The full walk took about 3 hours. The warden is very friendly and helpful.

We parked for free in Clun-Gwyn and walked the lower circular route that took in all the waterfalls. Took around 3 hrs with a 8 and 10 year old. Some hard bits walking up and down the valley but each waterfall was worth it. As...More

A great walk that we did with our young children. It takes around 4.5 hours to complete the 6 mile hike. Some parts are quite strenuous but well worth the effort. The falls are amazing. We had showery weather which wasn’t great. Parking is 4...More

Great afternoon spent visiting the 4 waterfalls. Parking £4 for the whole day, bargain! Really beautiful and a highlight of the Brecon Beacons

I think we might have gone on the best day possible - sunny, autumn colours, midweek so only a few other smug walkers about. There is definitely a bit of work walking down (and BACK) from the waterfalls to the circular track but SO WORTH...More
