The Climachx trail may be short, but it packs a punch bigger than the 15km length would suggest.
The Climachx was built in 2005 by ecotrails and is sited in the Dyfi forest; home of the Howies Dyfi Enduro. This trail is graded as red, although the second half of the last section (Tony the Tiger) is graded as black.
Natural feeling singletrack with technical rocky sections, drop offs, rock slabs and the scary left hander before the final switchback descent. Look out for the big red arrow or you’ll be taking a bigger drop than you bargained for! The final descent – ‘Tony the Tiger’ is the highlight.
The trail is looked after and managed by the local volunteer group ‘Dyfi Valley MTB’ see www.dyfimountainbiking.org.uk for more details.
The Dyfi forest is used for motorsports events on about 5 weekends a year. On these days the cli-machx trail is closed. Please check the Dyfi Mountain Biking website for details.
The climachx is 4 miles north of Machynlleth, a pleasant ride along National Cycle Route 8. There are no facilities at the trail head but there is a pub [Tafarn Dwynant] that serves food in neighbouring Ceinws a couple of hundred metres away.
