Great single track climb, rocky technical descending
Great climb up on techy single track, not that steep, but fairly sustained to get the legs warmed up. Some nice flowy sections, rock drops that caught me out a bit. Too many end of section motor bike barriers for me, but probably necessary.

was good hard up hill at 1st
this is my local trail and riding it is great some of the section could be more flowing done enough climbing at the start to be honest could do with upgrade but if you travel to these parts then you will love them just be carefull some tricky parts may catch u out lol

Big climb, Big descents, Top Trail !
Dont be put off at the start by the big singletrack climb, you'll be relieved to get to the top then full of adrenaline by the time you get to the bottom of the 1st descent. Many good technical descent sections on this trail with boulder drops, tabletop jumps, switchback berms over a mix of hardpack earth, loose stone and rock sections.....This has got to be my favourite trail between the Afan & Glyncorrwg trail centres.

Top Trail, but fooked me up!
Did this as part of an Afan wknd, did a hard run of 'Y Wall' the night before so wasn't as fresh as I could have been.
First up, straight into a zig zagging single track climb up the side of the Afan valley, not to steep but grueling and technical, very easy to stall if not in the right gear so keep ur pace up.
Lots of riders stopped resting on route,managed to get to the top in one go, but finished 1.5 litres of water on the way up!
From then it was all a blur of bone shattering, rocky, mostly downhill single track. I was on a hardtail and I'd say that the guys on full suss had a definite advantage.
A couple of bits of platform which I'm not a fan of, but generally ace.
Only criticism was the number of riders there, however on a sunny Saturday of a bank holiday wknd its not going to be at its quietest. There were quite a few bottle necks at the motor bike barriers they have there, the situation was not helped by a group of riders riding in my opinion with very bad etiquette.
If you're a more experienced rider on full sus and are obviously faster than me, I'm happy to give way to let you past, but don't then stop 100 m ahead for a conference, and then have to over take me again a few minutes later. This happened with one particular group of riders about 5 times!
Fantastic challenging trail, but perhaps becomming a victim of its own popularity?
