The Black graded Raven trail, designed by Rowan Sorrell and Brian Rumble, raises Brechfa's take on mountain biking to the next level.
Suitable only for proficient bikers, the trail effortlessly mixes up the more traditional narrow woodland singletracks with Brechfa's signature brash descents: fast, undulating trail that sweeps between trees and flows sinuously into berms and over jumps.
This trail takes you out into the more interesting corners of the forest and creates a ride that involves the forest's unique environment, from spooky mossy overhangs to the magnificent Douglas fir Northshore Bridge.
By the end of the trail, you will have had your full artillery of trail skills tested and more than likely will be seeking your way back to the start...
