Trail Community

Gorlech mountain bike trail, named after the river Gorlech what this trail delivers in views and scenery it certainly backs up with terrain and excitement.

Carefully designed by Rowan Sorrell (accomplished rider and trial designer), the Gorlech Trail takes design and construction to new levels, the trail is a hard, fast, all weather surface which becomes more and more exciting as your skill level and speed progresses.

Soon you'll be railing the perfectly sculpted berms and huge switchbacks, jumping the step up jumps and tabletops and grinning all the way to the bottom of the exhilarating final descent. The Gorlech red route firmly puts Brechfa on the MTB Wales map as another top destination.
