My take on a Caerphilly Nutters loop.
As close as i could get to the actual ride i did today.
I started in Abernant and followed the Cynon Trail to Abercynon Firestation and onto the Taff Trail.
From Abercynon i followed the Taff Trail as far as the roundabout after the entrance to Bike Park Wales.
once i was on the Merthyr side of the mountain i followed a rough track upto the Fire road and then took a left till was on the uplift route for Bike Park Wales.
From the top of the uplift route, i took a right turn onto Abernant Mountain proper and from there followed the track down (rocky singletrack mainly) until i hit Abernant and my house.
Th emountain track used to be a stunning ride, rocky but open views and quite a wide track so could avoid many of the larger rocks .... the track is now overgrowing leaving a singletrack mainly over a teeth loosening experiance, my Hardtail was not the bike for this but did survive and i did learn speed is key over those rocks :)
