Mountain Biking

Three tracks, three challenges...

The quickest way for mountain bikers to get their fix of single-track and down hill action is at Cwmcarn Forest, located half an hour drive from the Severn Bridge & Cardiff.

You will struggle to find a better single-track trail than the fearsome 'Twrch'. This is a superb trail of the very highest quality and is not for the faint hearted. Virtually the entire route is on purpose built single track through a mixture of broadleaf and conifer woodlands and open ridge tops.

Its sister trail 'Cafall' offers equally challenging sections of single track with fast technical descents, both trails climb 300m and are around 15.5km long.

'Y Mynydd' is a specialist downhill trail strictly for the experienced rider; it offers all the expected thrills and then throws in a few more for fun. The mix of natural terrain, built features and high speed combine to create the ultimate ride. Pedal hounds offers the same downhill experience but can be tackled on a standard MTB, it's up to you how hard you decide to ride.

Mountain bike packs are available from the Cwmcarn Forest Visitor Centre - the perfect place to unwind prior to tackling the trails!
