It rises in the small
lake Creiglyn Dyfiat about convert|1900|ft|m|sigfig=2 above sea level, below Aran Fawddwy, flowing south to Dinas Mawddwyand Cemmaes Road, then south west past Machynllethto Cardigan Bayat Aberdyfi. It shares its watershed with the River Severnand the River Dee before flowing generally south-westwards down to a wide estuary. The only large town on its route is Machynlleth.
Because of its origins high in the
Cambrian Mountainsand its relatively short length, it is prone to flooding and some roads in the lower catchment can become impassable during very wet weather. It is a relatively pristine river with few polluting inputs and is notable for its Salmonand Brown Trout.
The catchment area was notable for its now defunct lead mines and
slatequarries, especially around Corrisand Dinas Mawddwy.
The Dyfi is joined by the :
Dyfi Valley Way
