Nantygywryd: A4086 to Garth Farm Bridge

Grade 4 (5)
Length 5 km
Paddleable high to spate
Volume 5-12 cumecs

in North Wales ยท Snowdonia


Fast and fiercely continuous spate ditch across a featureless moor. About 1km into the run is a harder slot-like drop, inspect river right: be careful as there are few eddies and little warning. After this the river eases until a weir just before the takeout.

Water Levels

A spate run: the river needs to look bank full if not over the grass at the putin.
