Swallow Falls

We arrived at Betws y Coed in the afternoon, with time for one hike, so we went to look for Swallow Falls, over the Llugwy river. It’s an impressive multi-storey waterfall, which you can also reach by road (across from the Swallow Falls Hotel) if you’re not up to the somewhat slippery and wet climb along the river.

We started our walk from Pont yPair, the bridge at the edge of Betws y Coed, and followed a clearly marked trail. The first part of the trail is wheel-chair accessible, with ramps and pavement, so that everyone can see part of the beautiful landscape. We passed through several sheep pastures. At this point we were following the Llugwy river.

The ground was wet from several days of rain before our arrival. Below, you see the tree roots all over the path.
