Rating (1 is low,5 is high): 

Access: This is on the A5 between Capel Curig and Bethesada. When travelling in that direction as you come to the end of Llyn Ogwen you will see signs for a car park, toilets, youth hostel etc. on the left. Stop here (Pay and display). The waterfall easily missed by most is just below the bridge which like that at Devils Bridge in Mid Wales is a modern bridge built above an older bridge which has been left intact. Access can be gained to both sides of the waterfall, which then disappears from site. Walking along the single-track road just past the car park and looking back you can also see it. There are fantastic views down the valley towards Beathesada.

 

 

Comment: Next to the Youth Hostel.

 

The Royal Air Force uses this area as a training location and jet plains come through the gap above the falls without warning at high speed often in groups of two. They are a fantastic sight but occasionally people are taken by surprise and fall off narrow paths and the like!
