“There are two things all riders say about Y Wal. ‘I can’t believe I managed to climb all that way up without realizing or getting totally knackered’ and ‘That descent was absolutely awesome. Have we got time to do it again?'”

Some of the best singletrack descents in the UK, this 20km trail essentially traverses the North side of the Afan Valley on singletrack, varying from fast, open and flowing to tight, technical and rooty.

Great views of the valley and coastline open out at different points, and in places the steep-sided slopes can feel exposed.

The approach to the singletrack shares a section of the low level family cycleway and the disused railway line, so please ride with consideration for the many other forest users.
