At 27m, the Henrhyd Falls are the tallest falls in the Brecon Beacons National Park and in fact, in South Wales, although they are often overlooked in favour of nearby Waterfall Country, where the sheer concentration of waterfalls draws the crowds. This is a great walk for a winter’s day. It climbs onto some fine foothills, in the shadow of the mighty Mynydd Du, then slips through wonderful deciduous woodland – sheltered walking high above turbulent waters – before visiting the main attraction. The return leg follows the Tawe Valley easily back north. For a real treat, time it well and you can enjoy lunch in the Abercrave Inn
