The Arch, near Aberystwyth
Walks through huge beech trees with views over...
White Bridge is our main car park in Irfon Forest.
It is situated in a remote and peaceful part of mid Wales but is easy-to-find.
There are two short walking trails alongside the River Irfon which flows down from the Cambrian Mountains.
The pretty riverside picnic area is next to the car park.
There is a larger picnic site at our Pwll Bo car park which is half a mile along the road towards Abergwesyn.
You can also see the cascades and a pool where farmers once washed their sheep before shearing them - park in the lay-by near the Pwll Golchi/Washpool sign on the road towards Llanwrtyd Wells.
The walking trails are waymarked from start to finish.
Look out for the information panel at the start of the trails.
Find out about walking trail grades.
The Afon Irfon Walk follows the riverside path along the Afon Irfon and through a variety of woodlands before returning along the same path to the car park.
Enjoy the sound of the river and look out for the big Sitka spruce trees with their crusty plate bark.
The Cwm Irfon Walk follows the riverside path along the Afon Irfon and through a variety of woodlands.
It then climbs up to a higher track from where you can enjoy views of the valley and surrounding hills on the return to the car park.
