Doethie Valley in Llandovery is renowned as having some of the best natural mountain bike singletrack in Wales. It's views are legendary and many say the iconic ride is as much about the setting as it is about the ride itself. If you are looking for that lost natural singletrack nirvana you will have found it. 

In the summer folk refer to it as sweet flowing singletrack but in the wetter months more as a tough slow ride so the terrain rides much better in the summer and suffers in the winter months so bear this in mind.

It's also pretty close to the trail centres of Cwm Rhaeadr (Cylicwm), Coed Trallwm and Brechfa.
