- Cwmcarn trail conditions
When we had the last heavy snow back in 2010 I went up there. It was only me and one other chap and it was quite a laugh* so that’s why I’m tempted by this weekend – just don’t want the car to get beached anywhere.
*despite not being able to make it up the fire road climb without spinning out every few yards!Posted 5 years agomilky1980Member
The climb on the Twrch is always a fair bit colder in the winter due to not getting any direct sunlight, so it usually takes a good few warm days to melt any snow and ice in there.Posted 5 years ago
Spoke to a mate who lives in Cwmcarn and he said there’s still loads of snow in his back garden, so I very much doublt it’s rideable. Pity as I was going to go there myself!!
Been up cwmcarn this morning… Road in is closed so you divert through the village.
Did the Xc loop, the forest climb has a fair bit of snow on it 6 inches or more in places with a lot of fallen trees over the trail so plenty of hike a bike!! Up top was clear as were most the descents. A fair workout but good day out 🙂Posted 5 years agoKevaMember
I rode it this afternoon. What normally takes an hour and ten minutes took one and a half hours so it’s not too bad. 50 minutes to do the climb. Plenty of snow and slush in places, a few parts unrideable where it gets quite deep but I was able to run through it with the bike. Quite a few fallen trees across the trail, one bit where you have to go down the bank a fair way and drag the bike through the trees to get around it and then back up on the trail. All in all an interesting ride, glad I made the trip. Funnily enough I didn’t feel like doing two loops when I got back to the car. 😕 🙂Posted 5 years ago
