Video: Rob Williams Shreds the Forgotten Gem of CwmCarn

Aug 27, 2019

Often considered the forgotten gem of Cwmcarn, this 20+ year old track is dripping in lines to play with. Rooted deep in the other side of the mountain, the Pedalhounds black run starts at the peak of the Cafal XC track, spearing off left down the steeper side. Tree felling has left the top section of singletrack open and exposed. Huge unique rocky turns, secret gaps and hidden wall rides give the whole 203m drop a roller coaster feel.

The left-hand side of the trail centre isn't accessible for uplifts meaning this track gets a lot fewer wheels down it than it's bigger brother the Y Mynydd, keeping it a bit fresher. Using the Cafal's technical climb and the demanding Pedalhounds descent you can flip it into a serious enduro loop.

Let us know in the comments where you would want us to go next!

Cwmdown Uplift Service: The guys at Cwmdown have been an integral part of keeping the whole trail centre an exciting place to ride. Running since 2006, Cwmdown has become one of the most exciting places to take your bike any time of the year. Cwmcarn is one of the best places across the whole of the UK to ride in the wet, some people will even say the Cwmcarn is better with a splash of rain... @cwmdown_mtb_uplifts
