The Tarw Du Trail is marked as a black trail by the Forestry commission but is more likely to be a red trail. It has some fun, rocky singletrack lines that are not particularly challenging but do require focus to keep safe. There is very little by the way of singletrack climb, most of the climbing is done on gravel forest roads, which amount to 50-60% of the whole loop. Includes some rock slabs at the top of the hill, ride around is possible.

A good test of endurance if cardio is your main priority. If you want more single track, ride the MBR trail.
