2. PUNCHBOWL & 3 BRIDGES This walk is easier and only takes 10 minutes.
Devils bridge is in fact, three separate bridges built on top of each other across the River Mynach.
"According to legend, the original bridge was built by the very Devil himself, as it was too difficult for mortals to build. The Devil agreed to build the bridge in exchange for the soul of the first living being to cross the bridge. However, he was tricked of his prize by a canny old woman, who threw bread across the bridge, which her dog ran after, thus becoming the first living being to cross the new bridge. Devil's Bridge Falls.”
The Waterfalls and Punchbowl are open all year. Tearooms & Gift shop at entrance to walks During the winter refreshments and food are available from the Hafod Hotel opposite the exit to the waterfalls walk.
