Ystradfelte Waterfalls: The Waterfalls Dog Walks
Make sure you take your dogs on the Waterfalls Walk, a generally easy walk along the Afon Mellte. The walk passes two main falls on the river, Sgwd Clun-gwyn and Sgwd Isaf Clun-gwyn.
The easier of the walks is the clearly signposted "Waterfall Walk" that takes you from the car park at Ystradfellte along the Afon Mellte. This leads you to two of the main falls, Sgwd Clun-gwyn and Sgwd Isaf Clun-gwyn passing by Sgwd y Pannwr, a lower rockier fall, en route.
The climax of the walk for your dogs is Sgwd yr Eira on the Afon Hepste where the footpath passes behind the waterfall. Sgwd Y Eira in English translates to 'Spout of Snow'.
Try out the path behind the waterfall, but be careful as it can be slippery and wet. It is well worth the experience as you watch the curtain of water tumble over the rock above in front of you.
