Brechfa

The trails in Brechfa Forest offer something for novice riders but also cater for those who crave a more demanding venture. Located on the brink of the brooding Cambrian Mountains with views of the green Towy Valley, this huge forest in Carmarthenshire has all weather surfaces and is perfect all year round (sun, snow, storms… we go out in anything). The Derwen trail consists of two routes; a green route for novice riders and a blue route that can be used to improve your technical skills. The Raven and Gorlech trails are aimed at more advanced riders with jumps, fast singletrack, a Northshore Bridge and testing climbs.

In terms of diversity of trails, it has it all!

How to get here: From M4 junction 49, take the A48 to Carmarthen, at Carmarthen turn right at the first roundabout onto A40 towards Llandeilo. At Nantgaredig take B4310 through Brechfa, trailhead at Byrgwm for Derwen and Raven trials and at Abergorlech for Gorlech trail.
