Climbing to altitudes of over 400 metres, this trail gives you a real sense of adventure.

Tough climbs and tight hand-built singletrack sections combined with some fantastic steep and technical descents (Watch out for the Hideout, Rocky Valley, Heartbreak Ridge and Powder House sections) all delivering fantastic ‘natural’ feel for the more experienced riders only.

You will be rewarded with some amazing riding and stunning views of the surrounding area on a trail that takes you out into some of the most remote areas of Cwmcarn Forest. You will need to be self-sufficient and expect weather changes on this tough challenging and technical Red graded ‘difficult’ trail.
