Mountain Biking The Wall

*****   Add a review
#7 of 22 mountain bike trails in Wales
#2,757 in the world

This trail is known for great singletrack descents. It traverses the North side of the Afan Valley on singletrack, varying from fast, open and flowing to tight, technical rocky and rooty. It varies between a roller coaster and a rock garden...

There are stunning views of the valley and coastline at different points, and in places the steep-sided slopes will leave you feeling exposed.

    There are so many trails in the area, i cant begin to tell you how awsome and raw this area is. The wall is one trail that is part of over 200km of well used trails.
    The locals are amazing and its worth going to Afan Lodge and getting a guide foe a couple of days, worth every penny.

    Do the whole lot and turn it into an Epic 30 miler. Lots of energy required for that one!

    Rode Y Wal (The Wall) as part of longer Afan loop (W2 Blade). Y Wal has less rocks than Whites Level with gentler easy climbs and fast flowy descents. More 'blue' than 'red' IMHO and does have a reasonable dose of forest road on the climbs but anything flat to DH is sweet single track that any intermediate rider would love
