About

Bwlch Nant yr Arian Visitor Centre sits at the head of a dramatic valley and has commanding views of Cardigan Bay and the Cambrian Mountains.  and you'll find a stunning array of mountain bike faciities including a Mountian Bike Skills Park

Mid Wales is a serious stop off and venue for people wishing to improve their dirt jump and pump track skills and the Mountain Bike Skills Park at Bwlch Nant yr Arian equips people to more safely enjoy their cycling out on the existing mountain bike trails. The mountain bike skills park is a purpose-built track for mountain bikers to practice their technique or warm up.

Tucked away under the road in a quiet corner are three demanding skills tracks with rollers, step ups, berms, tabletops, hips, bowls packed into three tracks each exercising and consolidating existing skill.  Push boudaries and realize your potential, all at your own pace.

MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS
Bwlch Nant yr Arian has a range of purpose built mountain bike routes that weave their way through conifer plantations, down steep slopes and alond river beds. The mountain bike trails start from the visitor centre car park. They are waymarked and have been graded for difficulty. See page our website for grading information and read the information panel at the start of the trails to make sure you pick a trail that’s right for you.

The Arian Trail follows low-level forest roads and a section of public road around the lake and is suitable for all the family.

The Melindwr Trail is designed in two loops to allow competent riders of blue-graded trails to improve their skills before progressing to the next grade.

The Pendam Trail has some of the best flowing sections here with relatively short climbs and the Summit Trail weaves its way through the forest and onto the moorland; both trails are graded red.

The Syfydrin Trail is a black-graded long and challenging ride which takes in all of the Summit Trail and goes onto the high open hills with stunning views.
