Devils Bridge Falls is a world famous tourist attraction in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains and 12 miles from the seaside town of Aberystwyth . These unique waterfalls have attracted many thousands of visitors since the 18th century, including William Wordsworth who wrote about the “Torrent at the Devil’s Bridge”. Today, the Falls Nature Trail provides a unique opportunity to see this great natural feature in the Rheidol Gorge.

There are two walks to choose from:

This walk takes minimum of 45 minutes.
Difficult walk. 675 steep uneven natural stone steps.

The punchbowl walk is currently closed due to maintenance.  This walk takes 10 minutes or so.
Moderate walk. 300 slate steps

The Waterfalls and Punchbowl are open all year.

Refreshments and food are available from the Hafod Hotel opposite the exit to the waterfalls walk.

Tearooms & Gift shop at entrance to walks.
The tearooms & gift shop is currently closed but we are selling some cold drinks, chocolate, crisps and ice cream cornettos from our entrance kiosk.

Dogs must be kept on the lead.  If your dog is large then it may struggle to enter through the turnstile with you.  The steep steps are also difficult for dogs with short legs and you may end up having to carry your pet


Attendant at entrance from 9.45 am to 5.30 pm but hours do vary depending on high or low season. Please check the calendar for seasonal opening hours.
Entrance through coin operated turnstiles when attendant not on duty.

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 lose 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.
