  Rating (1 is low,5 is high): 

Access: This is on the A5 between Betws-y-Coed and Capel Curig about 2.5 miles past Swallow Falls when coming from Betws-y-Coed. There is a lay bye next to the road just before the bridge. ‘Extreme’ canoeists use this area because the falls and river are very challenging. A number of canoeists have drowned here and there are often flowers left in remembrance on the bank. This is considered to be a grade 5 to 6 with major hazards!

 

The army have a local base near here where they also train their people in white water and mountain skills. 

 

 

Comment: Can be viewed from the road. Lay bye next to the bridge.
