A few mates and I are planning a MTB trip from Cornwall to Brecon Beacon national park, I just wanted to know if there are any fun trails along the way that people would recommend, we've been riding Cardinham and Haldon woods and have been loving them so some similar trails would be perfect. Also has anyone ridden the beast of coed-y-brenin and is it worth the extra drive?

Cheers!

    Cwmcarn, Forest of Dean, Afan isn't too far out of the way. Nant yr Arian is a bit of a further drive past the beacons but a good loop.

    Thanks for those, I'll look into them and get them added to the trip, appreciate it.

    bloody hell, I forgot bike park wales! good fun if you want a shortish sharp ride up and then some great fun descents to play about on :)

    How long are you up there for?
    Cwmcarn, Bike Park Wales, Afan/Glyncorrwg all definitely worth a visit
    I've been up twice from South Devon over the last month (I'm also a regular visitor to Cardinham and Haldon) and they're all brilliant fun.
