Mountain Biking Cwm Carn

****   Add a review
#8 of 22 mountain bike trails in Wales
#3,463 in the world

Great ridin.
Single track, 4X, a new jump section at the top and downhill.
Downhill trax are sweet and the new jumps at the top of the hill are pretty darn gorgeous too. The single track is a red going on blue and is very pleasant.
The hill is big - so quite an exhausting trek to reach the jumps on the top. There is an uplift service available. Scenery's great too and considering that it's Wales it's always been sunny when we've been.

    Great bike park for all levels, expect to climb and get wet... one point misted my glasses so bad I had to stop for 10mins!

    XC trails are good fun. Fairly easy climbs and fun descents that handle rain OK. Only -ve are the huge number of gates that force you off the bike and kill the flow.

    I have done this track a number of times over the years and it is still as exciting as of day one. It has some good technical climbs and descents which keep you on your toes. Try it out you wont be disappointed.
