Details

Brechfa Forest, one of Wales’s best kept secrets with its dramatic views and deeply cut river valleys offering superb mountain
biking.

The Gorech Trail is the first of three new mountain bike trails for the forest. Designed by Rowan Sorrell, the route is made up of
three big climbs and descents stretching over its 19km.

Named after the river Gorlech, what this trail delivers in views and scenery it certainly backs up with terrain and excitement. Taking
design and construction to new levels, the trail is a hard, fast, all weather surface which becomes more and more exciting as your
skill level and speed progresses.

Soon you’ll be railing the perfectly sculpted berms and huge switchbacks, jumping the step up jumps and tabletops and grinning all the way to the bottom of the exhilarating final descent. The Gorlech red route firmly puts Brechfa on the MTB Wales map as another top destination.

Cycle Route: Grade: Difficult

Access: Climb: 1071m

Duration: 1.5 - 3 hours
