Aber Falls has been on my radar on and off for years, but I've never made it over to it. I wasn't even entirely sure where it was and I kept confusing it with another amazing waterfall Pystyll Rhaeder some miles away on the West Coast.
I recently stumbled across it in an old walking guide book however and decided we'd have a crack at trying to find it and see what the fuss was about.
Parking was fairly limited and it filled up really fast when we got there. Also it cost us £2 to park the car, so don't forget to take some cash. Admittedly we did go on a Saturday lunch time, which is pretty much peak time, its worth trying to get there earlier.
Once parked, all the routes are well sign posted so it's literally a case of jumping on one and heading south towards the falls.
There is a huge piece of forest to your left, most of this was closed off due to forestry work when we got there, but I'd love to have popped my head in and had a good explore through it.
It's a steady walk and it's mainly gravel path and relatively accessible. I think you could get a push chair up there no problem.
Take a picnic, enjoy this amazing site. It can get a little damp obviously if you're close due to the spray but hey, that's part of the fun right? After you're finished then head back the way you came or alternatively there are some more challenging routes which head west and north-west across the hills.
The car park has picnic benches and toilets which are well maintained but the nearest shop is North in Abergwyngregyn
