“Give yourself a break from poor railway trails and steal a slice of Brechfa’s rich oak forested beauty on this stunning Robin Hood style ride. The gentle cruise up the valley gives you the option to add the blue trail as an extra challenge too.”
We aimed to create a trail that engages the rider and heightens your senses giving a true taste of off-road riding.
Named after the oak woodland it effortlessly flows through, the 9.2 km Derwen trail gives the inexperienced off-road rider a unique introduction to the world of mountain biking.
Clinging low to the valley sides, the trail eases you in with steady climbs and fun descents. Weaving through the forest you will encounter some lovely scenery and flowing terrain in what has until now been one of Wales’s best kept secrets.
One ride will have you hooked and, perhaps, thinking of trying out the blue route as an extension to this ride.
