Nant-y-Moch Reservoir, Lakes and Reservoirs Ponterwyd, Ceredigion - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


. Ponterwyd Ceredigion Wales
Llyn Nant-y-moch covers some 600 acres and is actually a reservoir that was created for power generation in 1964. It is stocked with varieties of trout. The stunning scenery of the Vale of Rheidol is well worth exploring with it's lush dense woodland in the upper valley and fantastic waterfalls leading down the Rheidol Valley to the sea. There are cycle trails and walks in the Rheidol Valley some of which start in the town of Aberystwyth. The cycle route leads you through the lower Rheidol Valley to Devil's Bridge, mainly along quiet back roads and dedicated cycle routes. The majority of the route is classed as moderate but there is a very steep climb up from the valley floor to Devil's Bridge. Mountain Bike enthusiasts are also well catered for in the Rheidol Valley with the Nant y Arian Forest Trails being located between the lower valley and the Nant y Moch reservoir. The Syfydrin (35km), Summit (16km), and Pendam (9km) trails use twisting all weather tracks carved into the steep valleys and ridges of the forest to create challenging routes for even the more experienced Mountain Bikers.
