The cli-machx was built in 2005 and is sited in the Dyfi forest; home of the howies Dyfi Enduro.


It's a 15km round trip, with 9km of built single track with compressions and whoops, rock slab drop offs and some beautiful flowing turns.

The last descent is one of the longest in Wales and features rocky jumps; watch out for the 'eye of the needle' a huge jump with a narrow landing between two trees on the other side.

The finale is a sequence of eight huge berms following quickly after each other. Hit them high enough and fast enough and they ride really well, but don't look down!

There's also plenty of informal free-riding in the forest, but it isn't waymarked, so take a map or get a local guide.The Losin Lush shop in Machynlleth has maps of specific recommended routes in the Dyfi, and cross-country routes in the area.


There are no trail head facilities unfortunately, but there are 2 excellent pubs vey nearby, both of which rely on passing trade, so please pop in for a pint or some food if you can.


Just a 200 metres from the ClimachX is the Dwynant pub. They have excellent beer and occasional food. Details here - http://www.tafarndwynant.co.uk

Or Just a mile up the road in Corris is The Slaters Arms. A lovely bike friendly pub with regular pub grub and fantastic beer. Details here - http://www.theslatersarms.com/
