Natural Wonder at Devil’s Bridge Falls

If you’re visiting Wales, then we’ve got a must-do activity for your stack! A short journey from the lovely town of Aberystwyth is Devil’s Bridge, a fantastic nature trail in the heart of the Cambrian mountains, home to beautiful waterfalls and fascinating Welsh folklore.

Where can I walk in Wales?

Head down to Devil's Bridge, a nature trail in mid-Wales of outstanding natural beauty and fascinating folklore.

Any explorer of Wales will know it’s packed with wonderful nature spots – untouched ancient woodland, golden beaches and rolling hills. Devil’s Bridge combines all of these with a twist! According to local legend, the bridge was built by the devil in exchange for an old lady’s soul who wanted to save her cow. This beautiful trail is nestled in an ancient wooded gorge, with the Mynach river running through it. You’ll get a great view of the highest waterfalls in the UK, cross the ancient bridge, or even catch a red kite soaring above you, using the viewing telescope on the viewing platform at the end of the trail. For those in a hurry to board the Vale of Rheidol Railway, take the 10-minute trail, descending down the river to see the ‘punchbowl’ that the river has carved in the rock over many years, where you can see the three bridges overhead.

  • Detailed directions to the site can be found at:
  • There is a tearooms & Gift shop at the entrance which is open from Mid Spring to October.
  • From November to March, there will only be an attendant on duty if it is busy enough to cover costs, so if you’re visiting on a quiet day be sure to bring pound coins to enter through the turnstile.
  • Devil’s Bridge is high in the mountains and can be a challenging walk, so be sure to wear walking boots and warm clothes.
  • The nature trail takes 45 minutes, with steep and uneven stone steps.
  • The shorter 10-minute walk has slate steps.
  • Dogs must be kept on a lead and some dogs may struggle on the steep steps.
  • It’s not recommended to enter in icy or high winds as it creates hazards.
