Customer Warning

The steps are natural stone, mainly slate, and can be slippery when wet. Fallen twigs and leaves can create a natural hazard on the path and steps. Be aware of trip hazards such as tree roots and loose stones. It is essential that appropriate footwear is worn. When there is ice on the paths or high winds we recommend that you do not enter the walks.  We can not be held responsible for those who attempt the walk during inappropriate weather or for visitors that stray off the nature trail path.

Due to the geology of the Rheidol Gorge, the walks are not necessarily suitable for the elderly, disabled, asthmatic or for those who suffer from vertigo or heart conditions.  The amount of steps makes it unsuitable for pushchairs or for carrying babies in a sling or back pack. If you are not used to physical exertion then this walk could be too strenuous for you. Children must be accompanied by an adult.       For more information, see the Walks page

The paths are not lit at night therefore please allow plenty of time to complete the walk before it gets dark.
