Coed Trallwm

Mid Wales

About

This base, established in 2003, nestles in the mountains between the Irfon valley (2 miles south) with Llanwrtyd Wells, and the Elan Valley (5 miles north) with its 5 reservoirs, both long-time mountain biking areas.

In this remote part of Wales where population densities are measured in km² per person rather than vice-versa, the 15km of trails at Coed Trallwm serve as the starting point for the more ambitious to explore some of the wilderness beyond on the ancient bridleways and drovers roads which cross the 400km² empty quarter between Rhayader, Tregaron and Cwmystwyth where nobody lives any more. This includes the spectacular Doethie Valley below the Llyn Brianne Resevoir.

Facilities

Llanwrtyd Wells, the nearest small town hosts the World MTB Bog Snorkelling Championships, as well as the Real Ale Wobble and the Red Kite Bash (started in the 80’s when red kites were a rarity). There are 4 pubs, some bike friendly accommodation and a handy bike shop. The area has played host to enduro events such as the Merida and the Trans Wales as well as the Wales X/C series.

As well as the excellent cafe and visitor centre (open every day 12-4pm except Tuesdays) Coed Trallwm also has free bike washes and a range of self catering cabins in the forest.

The centre remains open but is also currently in the middle of an upgrading programme with the help of a Forestry Commission grant to restore the trails (blue, red and black) to a more robust state.
