  • Narbeth and Pembrokeshire singletrack
  • Planning on weeks holiday in July in Narberth. Bringing my lovely bike to Wales for the first time. Can anyone help by telling me where to find decent singletrack in Pembrokeshire? Don’t mind driving up to an hour. Cheers

    Youll get to brechfa in just over an hour, if you know the back roads. If you want to stay in pembs singletrack did a feature a few months ago x

    Preseli hills is more or less your only option beyond just going for a ride and seeing what you can find. It has to be said that Pembs offers alot more for anything other than biking tho…surfing, climbing, kayaking, coasteering…

    Have a look at Caneston bridge. If I remember there were a few loops there.

    I would recommend brechfa, or coast paths or some kind of canoeing….!
    Or a bit further of a drive.

    the ‘knights way’, this is the route that the ‘knights templar’ took from the estuary near ‘Blackpool mill’ (near canneston bridge) to Amroth building a settlement at Templeton on route [The name coming from Temple town].

    Going to Bluestone? I’ve been there a few times with the family but we’ve never got round to going far on the bikes. As others have mentioned Canaston Woods are on your doorstep but I’ve no idea if they are any good.

    Theres some great castles in pembrokeshire… especially pembroke, carew and manorbier. Some great coastal path rides walks around manorbier. Stunning walk down to barafundle and further on to broadhaven from stackpole quay and lunch/dinner at stackpole arms.
    Good surfing at manorbier and freshwater west.
    Pendine good fun if you like history of land speed records (museum of speed there) and Laugharne very quaint (another castle and) and Dylan Thomas boathouse. Theres heaps to do apart from ride bikes

    oh you mean the tracks that have been built without the land owners permission! then sensibly make a video and post it on the interweb! Quality!

    As far as im aware it was built with the owners permission.. they just dont want people driving down the track into the woods.. so have made a little parking area at the entrance

    The car park has been there for over 20 years and no land owner would accept the liability of allowing a track to cris cross a footpath as it does!

    The official right of way / footpath is the fire road track that runs down the valley that you can drive down. The Trail runs through the wood and isnt actually a designated footpath. Its basically a big loop where you go down the trail through the woods and back up the track to complete the loop. Are we talking about the same place??

    cloudnine the footpath has been there for at leat 42 years (set up by the forestry commission)and does go from the top end down to the clearing. I do know a friend of mums lives down the darker end and have heard of a few near misses with walkers and cars when some have come down the drop-off.

    Exactly, I never said it was a public footpath and the locals are getting hacked off with whats being done there and the last thing we need is something happening and the forestry management coming in and stopping all of it!

    OP if you want to go for a pootle while your on your hols.. shoot me a an email… the vimeo vid was not filmed by me or anything to do with me.
    The locals have got more to worry about with a dual carriage way being built on their door step than a few over grown kids men pissing around the nearby woods on bikes where they walk the dog once a week

    tbh not much round there. Live just over the border. Like has been said Pembrokeshire is sh#t for mtb, take the roadie or just come to Brechfa.

    Cheers everyone . Much more at home on two wheels than anything that floats!
