Aber Falls is a stunning waterfall located about two miles south of the village of Abergwyngregyn. The waterfall is formed as the Afon Goch plunges about 120 feet over a sill of igneous rock in the foothills of the Carneddau range.
It is a beautiful place to walk your dog and feel close to nature and a lovely spot for picnics. Visitors walking along the main footpath towards the falls may spot several small Bronze Age settlements including an excavated roundhouse and smithy fenced off with an information plaque adorning it, several standing stones and cairns are also present.
A network of paths running through the reserve makes it possible to return from the waterfall via a different route (through the woodland, for instance) and so to experience completely different views of the reserve and the surrounding area.
The waterfall is only one of fascinating things to look forward to when you set off on your walk, there’s wonderful scenery to enjoy along the way plus lots of historical interest, and then there’s the abundance of wildlife that makes its home in this beautiful place,such as weasels, wood mice, bank voles and a variety of birds.
It is an easy walk with a clearly marked trackway. You can enjoy a dip in the plunge pool of the falls too!
Be mindful of the sheep and wild ponies that graze here.
