Alwen: Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr to A5 road bridge

Grade 3
Length 14 km
Paddleable medium to spate

in North Wales


A mixed bag: some excellent rapids but also a few nasty fences and weirs. Watch out for a nasty weir where a footbridge crosses the river after the Cierw has joined.

Water Levels

Flows out of Llyn Brenig and has restricted flow, so levels may not relate directly to rainfall.
