Brimming with life and wreathed in legend, the waterfalls and rapids in our National Park add an exciting, picturesque and thoroughly romantic touch to our woodlands and hillsides.

One part of our Park, at the head of the Vale of Neath, has so many wonderful waterfalls that we call it Waterfall Country. Many of these cascades are easily accessible on foot, as long as you’re prepared to walk through beautiful woods to get there.

However you choose to enjoy our falls, please help us to preserve them by taking care, sticking to the paths and following the Countryside Code.


Waterfall Country Car Park Status

 Please be aware the roads in this area can be very narrow, becoming single track with little visibility and few passing places. Be prepared to give way and reverse on narrow lanes.

Patrol teams from the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, Natural Resources Wales, the National Trust, Neath Port Talbot Council and partners will regularly update the status of each car park.

Please check the status of each car park. If it's red, please head elsewhere.
