- Penhydd…anyone know when its opening again?
It’s not all bad, the forest is getting a green and blue trail so it’ll be better for beginners. It may never be as good for experienced riders as it was. I did hear a rumour that one of the elusive mast trails might be getting made official.Posted 6 years ago
I can’t find those trails for the life of me.
its still great to ride there. the Wall, Whites, Skyline are still as good as ever. Id be gutted if they were gone. I cant see it happening but i expect a lot more trail diversion coming soon. Every tree had a neon green spot on it today. At a guess its not because theyve been filming a new predator film there.Posted 6 years agoKonastonerMember
I attempted to ride it nearly a year ago when the felling was in full swing, the only section that was remotely ridable was the last section over the river (heart of darkenss?). The machinery had destroyed everything. If a trail opens is will not be Penhydd, never.Posted 6 years agogwaelodMember

Meddle I belive “9 Foot” was the prelude to Penhydd, I never rode it as I’m not from the area and most of my riding was further east.
Klunk, I agree that all of Afan / GC is hardly challenging but it’s fun and that is what it’s all about. If you want to make it more of a challen then strap your lights on and have a go when it’s dark, Penhydd at night was legendry! White’s Level was also super fun in the dark, before they cut all the trees down 🙁Posted 6 years agotaithMember
I was gutted when it first closed so have been asking regularly when it was due to reopen. At first I was told autumn 2011, then I was told the contractors (i.e. logging guys) had made ‘a right mess’ and that it would be spring 2012.
I was there yesterday and the latest is that Penhydd won’t open until next year, and when it does it won’t be the Penhydd we know any more. I was happy to hear that Sidewinder will remain, but everything else will be newly built.
I’m getting bored of the wall and Whites seems chronically overridden to me. I’ll have to sell a kidney, fill the car with petrol and go further afield 🙂Posted 6 years ago
