Description

A good finish to the upper Rhondda Fawr or the Rhondda Fach. Highlight is a series of semi-natural ledges under the railway bridge. Takeout river left just above Hopkinstown.

Water Levels

Note that in spate this becomes a serious undertaking: the railway bridge rapids become unpaddleable and the section downstream testing.
