Rating (1 is low,5 is high): 

Access: Two main options Both start the same. Travelling the A465 from Merthyr Tydfil towards Glynneath go towards Pontneddfechan, A4109. (Left off the duel carriageway). After going under the underpass take the first right at the first crossroads onto the B4242.

After a pub, The Angel, followed by the Pontneddfechans Public Conveniences. Park somewhere in this area and take the parked footpath opposite the WC and behind The Angel Inn, through some metal gates onto a well made up path which runs next to the river Nedd Fechan. After about 20 minutes there is an iron bridge where the river, Pyrddin joins Nedd Fechan. Cross the bridge and follow the path to the left hand side of the River Pyrddin until you reach Horseshoe Falls. (The author has not walked the route from the bridge to Horseshoe Falls).

Follow the main road through Pontneddfechan and out of the valley towards Ystradfellte. After about two miles take a narrow road to the left to the bridge at Pont Melin Fach over the Nedd Fachan. Just past the bridge is a car park and picnic area. Follow the path down the river past lots of nice waterfalls until you reach Horseshoe Falls

 

 

Comment: If you take the second route bear in mind that the river drops a long way.
