After being closed for several years due to development of a nearby windfarm, the Skyline Trail has been redesigned and it reopened in October 2021.
The trail shares the same sheep-track ascent as White’s Level, and continues on long, forest road climbs with sweet, flowing technical singletrack descents.
You will be treated to stunning skyline views of the Brecon Beacons, the Preseli’s, the Black Mountains and the South Wales coast.
This route will test your stamina and your nerve, with technical singletrack such as sections ‘On The Edge’ and ‘Excalibur’. Your reward will be out-stretched views and a nerve tingling, rocky, 6km singletrack descent back into Glyncorrwg. There are also 2 short-cut loops built into the trail.
You will experience exposure at altitudes up to 600 meters, and possible extreme weather changes. Again, be prepared.
