Nant Gwernol

About Nant Gwernol

Nant Gwernol, a rocky river gorge with cascading waterfalls, lies above the picturesque Tal-y-llyn valley in the shadow of Cader Idris. The trails follow the riverside and explore the remains of Bryn Eglwys Slate Quarry. You can park and start your walks from Abergynolwyn village hall or take the steam train from Tywyn to Nant Gwernol station.

Please take care not to stray from the paths as the old works are dangerous.

How to get there:

Nant Gwernol is in Abergynolwyn which is part of Dyfi.
