River Mawddach

Pont Abergeirw to PTF

Grade 5
Length 9 km
Current Level empty @0.17 36 minutes ago

A superb run. There are two good grade 5 feature drops before reaching the awesome Rhaeadr Mawddach waterfall, portage river right down a track to the confluence with the Gain. Two further gorges follow: the first is known as the "three nasties" (scout river left), the 2nd fun but easier. The run finishes with a bang with a 2m waterfall at the confluence with the Eden, then watch out for the weir immediately below. Takeout just after the next rapid "Public Toilet Falls" (PTF) up the bank on river right to the carpark by the toilets. ... read more about Pont Abergeirw to PTF

Grade 3/4
Length 5 km
Paddleable medium to spate

Watch out for the weir just below the confluence. Public Toilet Falls follows, and then a series of bouldery bouncy rapids before the run mellows towards the takeout as the road comes close on river left. ... read more about Eden confluence to Precipice
