The Sychryd Accessible Trail is a wheelchair-friendly walking trail located in the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales, United Kingdom. The trail follows a path of the River Sychryd and is approximately 1.5 kilometers long, with a relatively flat terrain and no steep gradients, making it an ideal walk for those with limited mobility. This trail is suitable for more robust wheelchairs and buggies.
The trail begins at the Dinas rock carpark , which has designated parking spaces for disabled visitors. From there, visitors can follow the well-maintained stone dust footpath that runs alongside the river, taking in the stunning scenery of the surrounding valley. On the other side of the river is the spectacular rock known as Bwa Maen, an impressive geological fold which earns its name of the bow or arch rock
Along the way, there are several information boards that provide details about the local wildlife, history, and geology of the area. There are also several benches and picnic tables along the trail, allowing visitors to rest and take in the views.
The highlight of the Sychryd Accessible Trail is the impressive cascading waterfall at the end of the trail, known as Sgydau Sychryd cascades.
Overall, the Sychryd Accessible Trail is a wonderful way to experience the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park, even for those with limited mobility. Its flat terrain, stunning scenery, and wheelchair-friendly facilities make it an ideal activity for visitors of all ages and abilities.
