The Derwen Trail - Typically, green trails are all on forest roads or canal towpaths - but not in Brechfa Forest!

We aimed to create trail that engages the rider and heightens your senses giving a true taste of off-road riding. Named after the oak woodland it effortlessly flows through, the Derwen trail gives the inexperienced off-road rider a unique introduction to the world of mountain biking.

Clinging low to the valley sides, the trail eases you in with steady climbs and fun descents. Weaving through the forest you will encounter some lovely scenery and flowing terrain in what has until now been one of Wales's best kept secrets.

One ride will have you hooked and, perhaps, thinking of trying out the slightly longer blue trail which climbs a steeper bank before taking in a longer, faster descent that will have you pumping and whooping all the way to the valley bottom.The blue route is also a stepping-stone to the steeper and more technical red Gorlech route.
