Description

The walk starts at the car park at the bottom of the Hepste Valley and takes you along a well-marked path through beautiful, wooded valleys and along the Hepste River.

The first waterfall you'll encounter is Sgwd Clun-Gwyn, which tumbles over a sheer cliff face into a deep pool below.

From there, you'll continue along the path to Sgwd Isaf Clun-Gwyn, which is slightly smaller but just as impressive. As you continue along the route, you'll pass through the beautiful Hepste Valley, which is home to an abundance of wildlife and stunning views.

The third waterfall on the walk, Sgwd y Pannwr, is located in a small, secluded valley and is well worth a visit.

The final waterfall on the walk, Sgwd-y-Eira, is perhaps the most spectacular of all, with a wide, cascading drop into a deep pool below. The Four Waterfalls Walk is a moderate route that takes around 3-4 hours to complete.

It's well marked and relatively easy to follow, although there are some steep and slippery sections that may be challenging for young children or those with mobility issues.

Be sure to dress appropriately and bring plenty of water and snacks, as the walk can be quite strenuous.

With its stunning scenery and beautiful waterfalls, the Four Waterfalls Walk is a must-do for anyone visiting the Brecon Beacons.
