The Tryweryn is a great resource for Wildwater racing as it is one of the very few quality rivers that are available through the summer period. The upper site and lower (usually referred to middle section) part of the river are very different in character. The top site is steep, quality international standard water, below the last feature – chapel falls the character of the river is much flatter slower and easier water.
The Tryweryn has a number of course options. Sprints are run on the following sections:
- Graveyard (top site)
- Slalom course (top site)
- Chapel Falls – Tyn y Cornel (below top site)
- Bala Mill (bottom course)
The top site is international standard water, being steep and quite powerful. The nature of the course changes significantly below Chapel Falls, with the water much slower and the rapids being defined by boulder strewn sections.
Accommodation is available in Bala and the surrounding areas.
You can camp next to the course at Tyn Cornel Camping
Follow the signs to the National Whitewater Centre for the top site.
