Heading to Coed-y-Brenin? Not sure which trail to do? Pick the Tarw, it’s amazing!

Yeah it’s only 20km, has quite a bit of fire road to ride on your mountain bike and covers a mere 460m of vertical but… it’s just so sweet, rocky, twisty, terrifying, challenging and fast!

It’s were it all began, it’s what drew the crowds here in the first place and it’s why there are so many trail centres all over the country. Plus, and this is important it’s really wore in places which means it’s even more challenging.

Seriously if you like rocky, fast flowing trails that aren’t designed for novices then this trail is for you.
