If you are looking for a short walk in Snowdonia  why not head for Aber Falls? This is a popular walk accessible for most people. The waterfall is at its most impressive after rainfall or in the winter months.

 If you are approaching Aber falls by car you will need to leave the A55 at  junction 13 and follow signs to Abergwyngregyn.

You can park  at Bont Newydd or a little bit further on there is another (pay and display) car park.

Allow a couple of hours to complete the walk comfortably. From the car park  follow the brown signs to Rhaedr Aber or Aber falls along the beautiful unpolluted river  and into the foothills of the Carneddau mountain range.

Besides leading to a magnificent waterfall the walk has other points of interest.

Half way up there is a small visitor centre with a lovely mural depicting the habitat from the surrounding area.

The walk is well known for its rich wildlife habitats. Woodland and upland birds thrive on the rich variety of insects. It is said that this area represents a microcosm of Snowdonia in just a few miles.

There are also some historical points of interest along the walk including remains of buildings from the bronze iron and medieval ages.
