Cwm Rheidol from Pontarfynach/Devil's Bridge

trip profile

A quick evening wander into the Rheidol gorge, starting from the centre of Pontarfynach/Devil's Bridge, where there is usually ample parking space by the side of the main road. After following the road in the direction of Aberystwyth up to the edge of the village, we took a gate to follow the path over grassland to the edge of the gorge, just above the Vale of Rheidol trackbed.

Gelli Ddu / Black Covert from Gelli Ddu/Black Covert NRW car park

trip profile

A quick evening stroll from the National Resources Wales car park at Gelli Ddu/Black Covert near Trawsgoed. This is just a flat walk through mixed woodland by the side of the Afon Ystwyth. On this occasion, the path was blocked in several places because windblown trees were scattered throughout the forest. This necessitated a few detours to the edge of the woodlands, with views across farmland in the Ystwyth valley.
