“Calling a trail a roller coaster ride is a knackered old cliché, but there’s no other way to describe the unique Gorlech ride. Every climb drops you into a madder, faster descent on the far side. The stone clad berms, kickers, tables and stump jumps just keep getting bigger and bigger every time in a mad mountain bike crescendo right up to the end. A truly unique skill and grin building experience!”

Named after the river Gorlech, what this 18.5 km trail delivers in views and scenery it certainly backs up with terrain and excitement.

Taking design and construction to new levels, the trail is a hard, fast, all weather surface which becomes more and more exciting as your skill level and speed progresses.

Soon you’ll be railing the perfectly sculpted berms and huge switchbacks, jumping the step up jumps and tabletops and grinning all the way to the bottom of the exhilarating final descent.

The Gorlech red route firmly puts Brechfa on the MTB Wales map as another top destination.

    We rode Gorlech yesterday and Strava reckons it’s 629 metres of climbing not 1071. Just thought you might like to know. Anyway, it’s the 3rd time I’ve ridden Gorlech and I’ve hugely enjoyed it every time and will definitely return to ride it again, even though I live in Surrey……
