The trail starts at Glyncorrwg Ponds Visitor Centre.

Skyline is a giant of a ride. Ensure you and your equipment are fully prepared for an epic skyline ride.

Sharing the same sheep-track ascent as White’s Level and continuing on long, forest road climbs with sweet, flowing technical singletrack descents you will be treated to stunning skyline views of Brecon Beacons, the Preselis, the Black Mountains and the South Wales coast.

This route will test your stamina and your nerve, with technical singletrack such as the ‘On the Edge’ and ‘Excalibur’ sections. Your reward will be out-stretched views and a nerve-tingling, rocky, 6km singletrack descent back into Glyncorrwg. There are also 2 short cut loops built into the trail.

You will experience exposure at altitudes up to 600 metres, and possible extreme weather changes. Again, be prepared.
