About this track

Description

Two foot bridges over the Cleddau River offer dramatic views of a series of powerful waterfalls.

Thousands of years of swirling water have sculpted shapes and basins in the rock. The sheer velocity of water gives an appreciation of how much rainfall the Milford Sound area receives per annum.
