This man-made trail centre has a vast range of activities which include open eagle shows, bird watching, horse riding, footpaths and a selection of MTB tracks.
On this ride we will do the "Sydyfrin" trail. In outline the ride is initially 25 kms long and includes the "Summit" red trail. However there will be the option to include a more remote and challenging 10 km extension, making the ride 35 kms in total. Graded black more for it's distance and remoteness, rather than its technical demands, the "Sydyfrin" is graded as a severe trail. With a climb of 670m, the ride will take around 3-5 hours to complete. The terrain is a mix of technical and flowing single-track and exposed and remote countryside. Many of the sections are also used by vehicles, walkers and horse riders so be aware. Please also note that those wishing to take part in the additional black part of the trail must come equipped wit a full face helmet and suitable body armour.
