Tarw Trail at Coed y Brenin was not only the original trail built in Coed y Brenin but it was also the first purpose built mountain bike trail in the UK, and probably the world!

This is where it all started and the success of this trail is why we have so many other great trail centres today.

This is THE classic trail and still knocks spots off more modern offerings elsewhere. It's rocky, it's retro, it's twisty, it's technical, it's fast and will really test your skills and fitness.
