Rheidol: Ponterwyd to Allt-y-Gigfran

Grade 5
Length 6 km
Paddleable low to medium

in Mid Wales


Totally bonkers. Take ropes, abseil harnesses, torches and start early.

Water Levels

More a gorge walk with kayaks than paddling: would be frightening in high water. There should be only just enough water to paddle over the first weir at the A44 putin.

Getting There

Putin at the A44 bridge at Ponterwyd. Takeout at a small footbridge downstream of Devil's Bridge Pontarfynach that can be approached from downstream along the road running along river right.
