Trail Community

W2 mountain bike trail is another a giant of a trail for Afan Forest Park at 44km, but unlike Skyline it has a watering hole halfway around.

Whether you kick-off from Afan Visitor Centre or Glyncorrwg Mountain Bike Centre, the other centre is your halfway service station for food, drink and a well deserved break.

The trail combines Afan’s existing “The Wall” and “White’s Level” trails (hence the name W2). A high level link connects these trails, with some fantastic views of both the Afan and Neath Valleys for you to enjoy.

This trail includes two of the most demanding descents in the UK.
