Mountain Biking

Welcome to Mountain Biking at Trallwm Forest Cottages called ‘Coed Trallwm.’

Coed Trallwm provides four routes for all abilities. There are four XC trails spread throughout the forest and they are graded with colours.

Trails - Open every day (remember to leave your £2 car-park money)

Green Trail

Distance: 1km.

Easy trail.

Blue Trail

Distance:4km Climb: 95m

A gentle start, winding through the woods over a little bridge before dropping down through the gears to ride up past the cottages.  At the top, the timber road ends and you continue on a single track descent.  Care is needed at fox's den,a dark narrow section and at a tricky stream crossing at the bottom of a clearfell.  Here you go left 300m then right 300m on farm tracks.  Then, just before you link to the black trail cilmb, there is an escape single track back down to the cafe.

Red Trail

Distance: 5km. Climb: 140m

The main ascent starts 800m from the cafe up the county road towards Abergwesyn. This 2km. track crosses the descending singletrack - watch out - taking you to the top of Bryn Mawr, where the trails from Llanwrtyd Wells join Coed Trallwm. Go round to the right where the track levels off, then drop right on to a fast single track left-handed traverse, switchback bend on to a right handed traverse before snaking down through the trees across your previous ascent. Continue till you dive off left for a tricky ride through ‘five springs’. Then pick your way down to the county road again with the cafe in front of you.

Black Trail

Distance: 5km. Climb: 155m

The toughest trail with spectacular views at the top. It leads off the blue trail with a 1km climb up a forest road. Turn hard right at the cross roads 250m turn left onto singletrack.

Check out the view from the summit before bracing yourself for a technical descent through the woods.  There is some doubletrack too and a tight turn at the bottom of a schuss, so be warned.The last section twists and turns its way past the Giant Oak Tree down to the Visitor Centre car park. Watch out for cars!
