Parking: Aber Falls Car Park. Visitors are advised that parking at the start of the 1.2 mile long footpath to the Aber Falls is limited to approximately 30 cars in two small car parks and costs £5.

These are accessed by a largely single track road through Abergwyngregyn village and severe congestion and long delays result on busy days. Alternative free parking is available before entering the village adding approximately 30 minutes to the walk to the Falls.

The upper car parks fill up rapidly and visitors are strongly advised to avoid driving through the village.
