Good condition no issues just watch the exit as it comes out onto a fairly quick blue trail

This would be a 10/10 trail if it wasn't for the fact that after pink heifer it's a really long and boring slog to finish on three short sections. Those three short sections were ok but they would probably have made a better impression on me if they weren't following that we massive climb. Up untill pink heifer it was awesome though.

This is a great facility, really well set up with visitor centre, toilets and showers, ample car parking, lots of trails that you can ride in any weather conditions.

However, the amount of climbing involved for the descents isn't really worth it in my opinion, UNLESS you've got an EMTB. This is perfect E bike terrain.

What I also found disappointing was how disconnected the trails were: a lot of the time you'd climb for ages, blast down a 60 second trail and then be back climbing -- very piecemeal.

In summary, if you're a beginner then this place could be for you. If you've been riding a while you'll be disappointed, push-up Snowdon and ride down.
