Pontneddfechan, Nr Glynneath,, SA11 5NR
This walk is all about waterfalls!!
On this walk we will start earlier than usual (9am), and therefore it's an optional stopover the night before. My thoughts on accomodation is local youth hostel, B&B. I'm interested to hear everyone's thoughts / suggestions though?

It's a long circular walk and a good steady pace is going to be needed if we are to finish in daylight, a few of us already have head torches, head torches are a must carry item when walking at this time of the year.
