GoPro Mountain Biking, Single track at Coed Trallwn
coed trallwm red route

Coed Trallwm Mountain Bike Centre is based in mid-Wales, near Llanwrtyd Wells. It consists of three quite short trails, a black, a red and a blue. So it offers trails for all levels. The trail centre has a cafe and is privately family owned and run.

The Black Trail

  • This is a short 5km long. This is the most demanding of the trails and there is a technically demanding descent

The Red Trail

  • This is also short and 5km long full of singletrack.

The Blue Trail

  • This is the shortest at 4km. It has a suitably tame start  for the grade that winds through the woods.

Natural Trails

  • The trails are short but the locations is great if you want to use it as a base to explore the multitude of natural trails in the area.

Other Stuff

  • The car park fees go to maintaining the trails and the centre has accommodation also if you are making a real trip of it.I quite like the fact that it is family run. Gives the place soul.

we rode here as we had an hour to kill and were in the area. first impressions were good, a small cafe which unfortunately wasnt open and a car park for 8-10 cars. we set off on the red route which followed the stream for a while then climbed up the country lane and further on, onto a fire road climb. was very steep but we eventually got to the top with fantastic views down the valley.
the descent was fairly basic, it didnt really throw up anything of a challenge and was a fast shoot down over the loose slate with a few berms thrown in. a bit further down there was a water spalsh and jump and then some tightish bits through the trees. we got to the bottom and felt there could have been a bit more to challenge for a red but decided we had still enjoyed it.
would most be suited for fitness training and doing a few laps or done with nearby cwm rhaeadr or brechfa.
