This reserve is about 3 miles north west of Betws-y-Coed. It is probably easiest to approach it from one of the unclassified roads leaving the A5 west of Betws-y-Coed or from unclassified roads leaving the B5106 south west of Llanrwst. There is a small car park. This reserve is not suitable for wheelchairs or push chairs and care should be taken as it is dangerous in places. The reserve is grazed by 3 friendly Highland cattle.
