Devil’s Bridge

Three stacked bridges at Devil's Bridge

Devil’s Bridge is a village built next to a crossing of the River Mynach gorge – there are in fact three bridges, built on top of each other, but we will leave it to you to find out why it is called Devil’s Bridge!

Beneath the bridge there are two walks allowing fantastic views of the falls; the short walk is called “The Punchbowl & 3 Bridges” takes about ten minutes, and takes you close to the pot holes carved by the river beneath the bridge. There are 220 steps.

The longer walk takes at least 45 minutes, and follows the gorge as it drops 90 metres to meet with the Rheidol. There is a series of steep steps and slopes, providing views of the waterfalls. One decent is called “Jacobs Ladder” and has 100 steps – we recommend suitable footwear, and we really wouldn’t take young children.

Getting there: Follow the A44 towards Aberystwyth until you see the turning to Devil’s Bridge A4120. Turn left and follow the road until you see the car park on your left.
