Sgwd Gwladys – Lady Falls is a 7 meter high waterfall in the river Afon Pyrddin. Sgwd Gwladys is very popular with visitors as it is one of the most easily accessible waterfalls in waterfall country. From the village trailhead in Pontneddfechan it is a 30 walk minute along the riverside Elidir trail to the waterfall. The trail entrance is behind The Angel pub and restaurant and is fairly level and suitable for most although it can be muddy in places.
There is a viewing area on minor branch trail just before the river crossing, most visitors continue over the bridge and head to the base of the falls on the opposite bank.
The return journey can be made on the trail on opposite side of the river. This path is not suitable for all as there are some steep sections and steps as you head back to Pontneddfechan.
The Edlir trail continues past several more waterfalls to Pont Melin Fach, the trail is steep and uneven after Sgwd Gwladys.
