Trail Status:  

Open - All Clear

Nearest Town: Port Talbot   

Penhydd Trail Mountain Bike Trail is an 17km circular route in Afan Forest, South Wales. Read more

This is a varied trail, which combines forest and road climbs with tight, technical, switchback trails through mixed woodland and open flowing singletrack through ground with great views.

Big climbs followed by technical descents including Hidden Valley and the Sidewinder leading into Dead Sheep Gulley, mean this trail is not suitable for novices and in places the trail is exposed to bad weather on high ground.
