If you like riding challenging singletrack trails, you’ll love Afan Forest Park. With over 150km of singletrack, Afan Forest Park is the home to some world class trails: White’s Level, W2 and Y Wâl. With the additional of the Rookie, Blue Scar, Penhydd and Blade.
Each of the trails offer a unique challenge, with Afan Forest Park providing trails for all abilities. From beginner and family trails through to intermediate and the perfect single track for the hardcore mountain bikers.
The trails start and finish from Afan Forest Park Visitor Centre and Glyncorrwg Ponds and Mountain Bike Centre (further up the Afan Valley). Both venues have a car park, cafe and in-house facilities catering for all your biking needs.
There is also a low level cycle trail called Y Rheilffordd that can be used as a link between all trails and venues within the park.
How to get here – Leave the M4 at Junction 40 and follow the brown and white signs
