Enjoy a walk through enchanting alder and oak woodland, past fast-flowing, spectacular rivers. This reserve is set in the heart of the beauty of the Cambrian Mountains.

You should have no problem spotting a red kite, and in the summer there'll also be pied flycatchers, redstarts, common sandpipers, dippers and grey wagtails. As the trail is set in a steep sided valley, some parts are rugged and steep, and can be slippery when wet.

There is a 2.5 mile (4 km) circular trail which starts with 400 m boardwalk with steps and gaps to allow sheep to pass through. Away from the boardwalk much of the trail is flat and the trail surface is compacted earth. The section adjacent to the River Tywi is uneven, rocky and slippery when wet. It is recommended that this section is best attempted by those used to hill walking and with sturdy footwear.
