In a remote woodland 20 miles from the mountain bike base at Brechfa, and just outside the village of Cilycwm lies Cwm Rhaeadr, home to a wonderful red mountain biking route. It may only be 6.7km in length and it may be the only route here, but it is definitely worth the trip. Made possible with funding awarded to the Cilycwm Local Community Association it is rated by MBR magazine and most who ride here as one of the best trails in the UK. Check out the film edit for Cwm Rhaeadr to see for yourself.
Accommodation and refreshments are available in the village of Cilycwm and in Llandovery.
The small car park at Cwm Rhaeadr is free to use.

Closures – HARVESTING OPERATIONS WILL COMMENCE IN SEPTEMBER 2019
We will be felling larch trees that have become infected with a fungus called Phytophthora ramorum. Under disease control measures, they have been treated them with a herbicide to minimise the spread of the disease. The trees have died and now we need to fell them.
These operations will cause some disruption, and parts of the forest will be closed to walkers and mountain bikers.
