“The longest Trallwm ride, with the biggest view and thrill payback. The Black climbs north to the stunning vistas of the mountains around the Elan Valley. Natural woodsy singletrack, doubletrack and carving ski style descents bring you back right to the cake stop for a slice (or two) of Trallwm’s legendary homemade hospitality.”
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!
After that you’ll need to relax with a drink and a slice of home made cake in the cafe. You’ve earned it!
