Waterfalls in the Brecon Beacons

We're heading to SW Wales later this month. Browsing the list of things to do on Tripadvisor, there's a couple of highly rated waterfall walks close by, specifically Henrhyd and  Sgwd Yr Eira (Four waterfalls walk).

Going in late spring, after quite a dry spell, I know is not going to be the best time to go, but I was wondering if it's still worth visiting?

Are we talking...
- Dry as a bone with not a dribble of water to be seen
- Just a piddly little trickle
- Still a waterfall, just not as impressive as it could be

    The four waterfalls walk is lovely and I wouldn’t imagine it would be a waste of time

    There a few reviews online written this month and all mention how wonderful it was, no mention of a lack of water :)

    The flow might be a bit less after this heatwave but will definitely be worth a visit. 

    I've been a number of times in summer and spring and they have never disappointed :smile:
