Aber Falls, Abergwyngregyn

Aber Falls, just a five minute drive off Junction 13 on the A55 is a lovely, easy walk with a really quite incredible waterfall at the end of the walk which is reward itself! Easy to find, just follow the brown signs once off the dual carriageway. There are plenty of places to park for free along the lane leading to the falls, however if you want to begin your walk closer, there are three car parks available at the beginning of the walk, although these are payable – £2 for the day.  You will also find public loos here too. We love finding things to in North Wales – especially when they are free!

Two walks are signposted from the bridge – we took the ‘moderate’ walk which was actually very easy, with only a few steps for the first five minutes or so, then easy going for the rest of the walk, both walks are just under three miles long however the ‘easy’ route is accessible for visitors with pushchairs.

There are lots of things to see along the way, my favourite was the abundance of wild bluebells which were simply stunning however my nephews was the hollow tree and the wig wam! If your dog is well behaved, you can let him off the lead, however you will almost certainly pass lots of dog walkers and families and you are in sheep country so please be aware. We chose to keep ours on their leads.

Once you arrive at the waterfall, there are plenty of spaces to stop and admire the view and there are some lovely spots for a picnic by the river before making your way back.
