To get to the waterfall, you have to go up the bit of a hill from the car park, dodge the scousers and then go onto the road (be careful) then look for the sign and gate for Plas power woods, the first waterfall is about a 15 minute walk away
Nice day by the river
Went for a nice walk, lovely and quiet even on Good Friday
there is parking by the war memorial in Bwlch gwyn. It is on the corner, about 250m from the pub that you pass on the left coming from Wrexham
nant y ffrith waterfall
if you look on Google maps, you can navigate to the waterfall and caves.
I don’t personally recommend it, you have to go over a fence or past a no entry sign. Dodgy with kids or on your own
Looks a bit rough for a wild swim. In December.
