Upper Tawe Valley and Henrhyd Falls

Ten intrepid walkers embarked on this moderate 8.5 mile circular walk in the Upper Tawe Valley accompanied by optimal, breezy, walking weather. The walk started with a steep, but manageable ascent onto Craig-y-nos and Cribarth to a height of about 428 metres where we were rewarded with cracking views across to Black Mountain and the Brecon Beacon ranges, a perfect spot for a coffee break. We then descended down to Abercraf to have lunch beside the waters of the Tawe.  Slight rain accompanied us out along the beautiful wooded Nant Llech Valley to the Henrhyd Falls, the highest waterfalls in South Wales, and late afternoon sunshine guided our return with us passing through the Craig y Nos Country Park where we were rewarded with beverages, cake and ice cream at the park cafe.
