      The Gorlech Trail, designed by Rowan Sorrell, is made up of three big climbs and descents stretching over its 19km.
      More progressive riders can also test their full arsenal of skills on the fearsome but thrilling features of the black graded Raven Trail!
      In contrast, the Derwen Trail is the starting point for families and novices and a great introduction to mountain biking.
      All trails show off Brechfa Forest at its best.
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
