“Or come the incessant shocks, from that young stream that smites the throbbing rocks.” W. Wordsworth.
Devil’s Bridge Falls is overflowing with tales, legends and otherworldly mysteries: that over the centuries have inspired poets, painters and sure-footed adventurers. Located just 12 miles inland from the coastal town of Aberystwyth, before you undertake the 45 minute Devil’s Bridge Nature Trail: it’s essential to have strong calves, and to be aware of a legend that believes the devil himself built the bridge! If that doesn’t put you off, you will join the many tourists, who have flocked to the heart of the Cambrian Mountains for centuries, just to view this outstanding natural feature. Boasting a deep gorge, a punchbowl; three bridges stacked one above the other, and a narrow-gauge railway link, the 300ft Mynach Waterfalls are deep within an ancient wooded gorge, and reward hearty walkers, with beautiful views, and a fascinating story to tell.
