Brechfa

South Wales

About

Brechfa is a perfect destination for both pootlers or those who like to ride totally pinned. The Gorlech Trail, designed by Rowan Sorrell, is made up of three big climbs and descents stretching over its 19km. More progressive riders can also test their full arsenal of skills on the fearsome but thrilling features of the black graded Raven Trail!

In contrast, the Derwen Trail is the starting point for families and novices and a great introduction to mountain biking.

All trails show off Brechfa Forest at its best.

Facilities

There are free car parks with picnic and BBQ facilities.  The Black Lion pub, Abergorlech just round the corner from the car park services those riding the Gorlech trail.  In Byrgwm car park there is The Shed café for those riding the Raven or Derwen Trails. The Forest Arms is in Brechfa village welcomes muddy mountain bikers.

Additionally, the Red graded Cwm Rhaeadr trail is about twenty miles northeast of Brechfa and well worth a look if you are in the area.

Trail Disruptions Due to Harvesting

Due to harvesting work being undertaken within the Brechfa Forest from the week of the 2nd of December 2019 until the start of March 2020, there are likely to be diversions in place for the Blue and Black Mountain Bike trails at Byrgwm.

Please find the following maps showing the diversion route of the Black trail and Blue trail. Please note that only a small section of the Blue trail will be open, and users will need to follow the Green Trail way marker posts. There will be barriers in place to help direct users.

We apologise for the short notice but unfortunately this work was unexpected and needs to complete by Spring 2020.

If you have any queries please contact Jessica Morgan, Senior Land Management Officer for Brechfa on 0300 065 5150.
