Pontneddfechan, Neath, SA11 5NR

One of the best waterfall walks in the UK at the southern end of the Brecon Beacons.  This is a magnificent but challenging day-long walk which will be led by international mountain leader Steve Bees.  He has led numerous walks for us in the past and is highly experienced.

Starting at Pontneddfechan, the walk follows the river Mellte to the village of Ystradfellte, walking behind one waterfall and visiting a series of others before taking a peep at Porth yr Ogof, where the river goes underground.  From there it will be a walk over a hill to the next river valley of the Nedd (Neath) where there are further numerous falls.  The great limestone woods and steep valleys are stunning. 

The walk is roughly 9 miles long with sections of awkward walking underfoot (very wet walking behind the waterfall) and mud in places.  It is therefore only suitable for confident walkers with good fitness.  Due to the nature of the terrain we are limiting places to 12.

Whilst it is possible to do this as a day trip from Bristol (it's a short two hour drive), you may wish to make a weekend of it and enjoy a bit more of Wales.  There are toilet facilities at the start/finish and half way round but you will need to bring a packed lunch as there are no shops or cafes on the walk.  The walk should finish around 5pm.

Cost: Members £24, Non members £32
