Swallow Falls, Betws-y-Coed

3.7
#1 of 6 in Parks in Betws-y-Coed
Originally known as the Foaming Waterfall, the cascading waterfall system of Swallow Falls offers dramatic views from various vantage points. Take the hiking trail to the top of the falls, which includes many rest areas for taking pictures or picnicking. While the view is more impressive with more rainfall, it can also make for treacherous footing. The falls are accessible by car or on foot from the nearby town of Betws and Coed. Be sure to carry coins for parking and entrance fees as change is not given. There is a small public house in a hotel across the street if you feel like having a warm drink after the hike. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Betws-y-Coed trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
