Doethie Valley in Llandovery is renowned as having some of the best natural mountain bike singletrack in Wales. It's views are legendary and many say the iconic ride is as much about the setting as it is about the ride itself. If you are looking for that lost natural singletrack nirvana you will have found it.

It's also pretty close to the trail centres of Cwm Rhaeadr (Cylicwm), Coed Trallwm and Brechfa.
