Y Mynydd Downhill

Grade:
Distance: 1.9 km
Time: 3 - 5 mins

This is an advanced level downhill course which is definitely not suitable for novices. This is a hardcore trail which will be heaps of fun if you have the skills and experience to tackle it. If you plan to ride this trail bring along a very good quality mountain bike, preferably with at least 6 inches of suspension front and back. It is also advisable to wear a full face helmet and some additional protection such as knee/shin and elbow pads.

The trail consists of a technical and steep top section with steep drop-offs and some jumps, then its down to the middle section which is fast and flowing with some more jumps. You then cross a fire road straight off a two foot drop onto the lower section which is probably the fastest part with yet more jumps.

An uplift service is provided by local company cwmdown. Check out their website for up-to-date information on availability and prices.
