Details

Car park with a view and the gateway to Swallow Falls
Ty’n Llwyn means ‘house in the grove’. This is a great place to have a picnic with a view (tables provided). It is also the starting point for a walk through woodland to the famous Swallow Falls waterfall.

The Swallow Falls Trail 2.5 miles, 4 kilometres.
The Swallow Falls Trail goes to a viewpoint over this famous waterfall. It descends through a woodland before it reaches the viewpoint where there is a bench. The path then winds its way up through trees and rocky outcrops to another viewpoint with a fantastic view down the valley. You get a great view from this side of the river so don’t forget your camera. This trail is one of Natural Resources Wales Ten of the Best Winter Walks.

The Gwydir Forest can be accessed from eight different car parks and locations. Most of which are close to refreshment places and toilets. Please note: Sometimes we need to close or divert trails for your safety whilst we undertake maintenance work or forest operations. Occasionally we may have to close a site in extreme weather, such as high winds or snow and ice due to the risk of injury to visitors or staff. Please always follow any instructions onsite and make sure you follow any temporary diversion signs in place.
