Cynon: Mountain Ash to Taff confluence

Grade 2
Length 8 km
Paddleable medium to spate

in South Wales


A pleasant run with a few weirs to watch out for. Although the surroundings are certainly not idyllic, the last 2km in particular is good water. Takeout after the confluence with the Taff.

This is a busy valley! Putin at the small bridge just off the A4059 upstream of Mountain Ash. Takeout after the confluence with the Taff from a layby on river right just downstream of Abercynon.
