The Wall trail at Glyncorrwg is a swooping 24km mainly singletrack loop with epic views and breathtaking descents to keep your heart pumping all the way round. Watch out for The Graveyard section and hang on for the searingly fast final descent.
Boasting some of the best singletrack descents in the UK, this trail traverses the north side of the Afan Valley on singletrack, varying from fast, open and flowing to tight, technical and rooty.
Great views of the valley and coastline open out at different points, and in places the steep-sided slopes can feel exposed.
The approach to the singletrack shares a section of the low level family cycleway and the disused railway line, so please ride with consideration for the many other forest users.
