Distance: 24 km
Time: 2 - 3.5 hours

The Blade trail is a fantastic addition to the Afan Forest Park trail network. With lots of great singletrack sections combined with some of the classics like ‘Peregrine Ridge’ and ‘Jetlag’ it shares the same sheep track climb out of Glyncorrwg with the ‘White’s Level’ trail. The Blade then takes you out to higher and more remote areas as it twists and winds its way around the 24km Red graded loop.

With some tough technical climbs and fast flowing descents it off¬ers a fantastic day out for the more experienced rider. Watch out for ‘Groovy Gully’ and ‘The Rock’ & ‘Ghost Train’ sections that will test your climbing and descending skills equally.
