This ‘classic’ South Wales trail is designed to be a progression to the more demanding Afan trails but still keeping its red intermediate grade status. The 14.4km Penhydd combines with the Blue Scar to climb out of the Visitor Centre and then splits off to give a stunning trail mixing the old with the new.

Where the Blue Scar branches off, the Penhydd continues to climb, warranting the red grading. It combines forest road climbs with some fantastic views with flowing singletrack descents and some new steeper rocky sections looping back to the Visitor Centre. The big climbs followed by technical descents mean that this trail can be demanding and can be exposed to bad weather on the higher ground.
