By Road:
The best way to access Rhayader Tunnel is on the Elan Valley Trail which runs through the middle of the reserve. It starts on the western edge of Rhayader.

Take the road signposted to the Elan Valley (B4518), and find the Trail car park on the edge of town, just before the turning to Aberystwyth Mountain Road on the right. Walk or cycle up the gentle hill on the Trail for about 100m and then you will enter the reserve.
