This lovely waterfall can be found in the Melincourt Nature Reserve. The reserve is made up of Ancient woodland and throughout the year many species of flora and fauna can be found here. The spectacular 80 foot Waterfall is just a ten minute walk away from the Car park. The lovely path weaves its' way alongside the gushing stream when eventually as you climb the small incline, you will see the waterfall before you. I visited after many days of really heavy rain, it was spectacular. I found myself mesmorized by the tranquil surroundings and the sheer force of the gushing water. Apart from the path to the waterfall, there is a circular path which takes in the rest of the reserve. You will find further details of this path on the information board in the car park.

The Waterfalls are signposted off the A465 at the Resolven roundabout.
