The Gorlech Trail at Brechfa Forest (NRW)



Contact Details

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

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. For further information visit:


The A482 (Lampeter to Llandovery), the A40, and the A485 (Lampeter to Carmarthen) encompass the forest. There are numerous roads that lead to Brechfa Forest, and Abergorlech and Brechfa are small villages located next to Brechfa Forest on the B4310 road. Follow the A482 between Lampeter and Llandovery until the turn off for Llansawel (B4302). Once in Llansawel follow signs for Abergorlech.
