Trail Description
About this trail
Skyline Trail is the most recent addition to the area, 46km long and over 2000m of climbs and descents. Stunning ridgeline scenery and a roller coaster final descent on Jetlag with drop offs and steps will remind you what you came for. A serious piece of trail for experienced and fit riders, not for the faint hearted but well worth the effort!

Review: Afan offers great high mileage fast flowy trails. Blade trail gives you best of Skyline in 1/2 distance, combine with W2 for a 60km day of great fun. Lots of rocks so use big tyres on solid rims although other than some optional lines and sections on 'Whites trail' and a few bits on 'Blade' nothing is too technical and all the climbs are modest grade. Ongoing improvements and new trail sections. Afan Lodge nearby is great place to stay.

Review: Afan is epic on all levels. There are enough trails of intermediate to highish level to keep everyone happy. One hour technical climb on 'whites levels' gets the blood pumping. Followed by the black run including north shore then a great descent requiring full commitment.(not for the faint hearted). 15 minute fire track climb to windy point, which descends on superb sweeping single track onto rocky drop offs and air friendly jumps. Don't get it wrong there is no where to safely fall here! Don't forget to get in 'energy' the most joyful descent of lumps bumps and sweeping forest descent. Head onto skyline for the final epic descent, ensuring your suspension is set for maximum travel. You'll need every bit of control through this aggressive rocky welsh pavement of pure addrenalin and joy! And then theirs the 'wall' .....
