I’m staying up in Caersws in Mid Wales next week. I know about the now infamous Caersws DH runs up in near Pontdolgoch but I was told there’s some nice runs in Bryn-y-pertre woods near Aberhafesp. The guy who told me wasn’t an MTBer but said he’s seen people riding there all the time.
Can any locals give me a clue on what type of riding is on offer? I would guess it might be short DH runs or maybe it’s just XC thrashing.
I was told People Park up around here!

    the car park is at the top of the woods.as you go through gate onto fire road keep goin until you get to a fork at this poit go stright up the track left by a tractor this takes you to the top of the run.i would recomend doing a sighting run as i have not been up there riding for a while as i no longer live there but i know some local kids av bin up there building and they never quite finish stuf off.let me know how you get on.n if u wana join us 4 a ride on sat
