This is a superb trail of the very highest quality that is not for the faint hearted. Virtually the entire route is on a purpose built singletrack through a mixture of broadleaf and conifer woodlands and open ridge tops.

The riding varies from open and flowing hard pack to tight technical and rooty and is rideable in all weather. In places the trail hugs the sides of some very steep wooded side slopes, demanding concentration, whilst in others it sweeps along open ground giving you the chance to take in dramatic views of the Bristol Channel and the surrounding hills.
