- State of Cwmcarn?
Haven’t been to Cwmcarn since it had all the fire. Have the trails been reopened now? And how’s the top of the Twrch trail? There used to be some wicked DH runs to session, last time I was there they were closed for felling I believe.
So, what’s the current state of play?Posted 5 days ago
Last time I went about a month ago the Twrch was fully open, I think the older downhill was open, but pedalhounds was shut as was Cafell. I think Cafell now has a route that is open but it’s not the full lap as some isnstill closed for logging – I assume pedalhounds is the same.
If you find mtb park ranger on Facebook he updates trail info for Afan and Cwmcarn quite regularly.Posted 4 days agoP-JaySubscriber
I was there last night.
Cafall is sort of half-open. Unfortunately that means a lot of climbing, 2 descents and it spits you out for a long fire road descent – BUT there’s an option to carry on up the hill and tag into Trwch.
Makes for a great 20k-ish loop.
Twrch itself it fully open and riding beautifully.
If you haven’t been for a while. there’s a lot less trees and a lot more scorched earth.
The original DH got a polish over about a year ago, it’s a not as ‘wheels down’ as it was, especially the bottom 3rd, but it’s very good.Posted 4 days ago
I’m planning to get up early and go Tom CC to ride for a couple of hours. I like the sound of combining the 2 laps to get around a 20k ride. I’ll check out that Strava link – but at what point on Cafell so you need to split off to get to the top of Twrch?
It’s either that or try and do the reduced Cafell then the whole of Twrch but hat might be too tight on time and I’d prefer not to waste time on a fire road descent.
I have got a Lezyne watch which apparently does turn by turn nav but I think it takes fit files rather than gpx which I’ve not figured out how to do yet.Posted 3 days ago
