Trail Community

The Beast Trail at Coed-y-Brenin is the trail that everyone aspires to ride. It's long, it's tough, it will stretch you physically, mentally and has left many broken souls.

You can expect loose rocky climbs, gnarly descents, stone fly offs, berms, tabletops and hips. Get low and funky through Adam & Eve's rhythm section, tight & twisty on the Serpent’s tail, fly down the Adams Family but watch out for Lurch's stone corkscrew before ballistic speeds on Uncle Fester. And don't forget the Pink Heifer, Big Dug combo that gives over 4 kms of continuous sublime singletrack through the majestic tall Douglas Firs. Smash it in a oner and feel the burn!

So will you be dragging yourself up the final climb, limping down the last descent utterly spent, or will you rise to the challenge and tame the Beast?
