We have been to Gawr Valley 3 times. You can do the blue climb, two black runs and the blue descent in just over an hour. The contrast between blue and black is striking. The blue is a simple climb and a swoopy descent. The black is a lung buster to a desolate summit (you can see Afan Forest from the top) followed by some bermy bits, a rocky step section and some drops, really good work to get all the features into a small trail. If you are heading for Brechfa, BPW or Afan it is certainly worth calling in.

Good Points
Great contrast between well surfaced flowy blue and ragged-edge black. Very quiet. All weather surface with very little mud. Free parking. Great views. Challenging climb.
Bad Points
No facilities.

Fantastic trail right on my doorstep, but it's a pity a few local people think it's trail for dog walking :(

Good Points
Thought the Blue run was amazing, easy to get to and a fast quick trail, amazing views from up top
Bad Points
Didn't enjoy the black run, too many big stone boulders, and drop offs but the more experienced rider would probably love it ,
