Nant Clydach: Porthcelyn bridge to Taff confluence

Grade 2/3 (4)
Length 8 km
Paddleable high to spate

in South Wales


Continuous grade 2 leads to the first short tunnel. A section of tree/fence/bridge dodging follows before a 70m tunnel (be careful of possible debris!). As the river nears Glyncoch you reach an excellent grade 4 gorge.
