Welcome back, our Skills Park and mountain bike trails are now open. The Visitor Centre remains closed for the time being. Plan your visit, check the weather, down load your route, please bring with you everything you need to be self-reliant, First aid kits, food, drinks, change of clothes etc. We will keep you updated on our Facebook page so please check there before your visit. Follow the countryside code. And please respect neighbouring communities and NRW staff. NRW advice is to take care of yourself and others. When possible, keep active but ensure you follow the Public Health Wales and Government guidance about social distancing.

The Melindwr trail is in two loops. The first loop is under 2km with one forest road climb, a fine view with a bench and one super fun flowy descent with lots of berms back to the visitor centre. Riding both loops is 5km. This takes you up the beginning of ‘Italian Job’ before  descending the ‘Half Pipe’. Take care on the next two-way shared use section before climbing round the ‘Nose’ for a distant view to the sea. Recover on the bench before a long, flowing descent with fun rollers and berms. The return forest road climb has one section of 12%  gradient, but you’ll be well rewarded by the exciting final descent.

This trail is designed as ‘progressive’; allowing riders who are competent riding blue grade trails to improve their skills before progressing
to the next grade up.
