Approach to the Devil's Staircase, Powys
There are two very steep hairpin bends ahead on this rapid descent into Cwm Irfon. The road is a former drover's route between Tregaron (or Strata Florida) and Abergwesyn, vis Cwm Cammdwr, Cwm Tywi, and Cwm Irfon. The road cannot be negotiated in icy weather, or when the Afon Irfon or Afon Tywi (from Strata Florida) are in flood.
