Sychryd: Trebanog Isaf to Mellte confluence Dinas Rock

Grade 4/5
Length 2 km
Paddleable high to spate

in Brecon Beacons ยท South Wales


You get on just below a tunnel, and grade 2/3 water leads down to a 3m waterfall with a shallow landing. The best section is shortly downstream as you paddle under a wooden footbridge, and ends in a 10m gorge. As the river flatterns out and you paddle past a big cave on river right watch out for the boulder choke downstream. An awkward portage on river left that requires a rope.

Takeout at the confluence with the Mellte at a large carpark by a small stone bridge that you'll reach driving east towards the river through Pontneddfechan. Putin at a layby off the A465, this is only accessible when travelling eastbound along the A465, just before it crosses the river.
