The fastest way for southern based riders to get their fix of singletrack fun and DH action, Cwmcarn is less than half an hour from the Severn bridge and 10min from the M4.

The wild and more natural contouring singletrack of the new Cognation funded Cafall and legendary Twrch trail. Red graded trails will keep you firmly focused on your riding, but stop for a breather and look about and you’ll be looking out over the Bristol Channel. The Y Mynydd Downhill trail has been joined by the new Cognation funded Peadalhounds DH trail giving another Exxtream graded option for those joining the onsite uplift.
There’s also a purpose built freeride park, full of jump packs, berms, wall rides and a complete corkscrew for getting your eye in before hitting the full descent.
