Dyfi - Lots of choice, excellent 'enduro' trails

An area of great varied riding which may mean leaving the beaten track, but well worth it

Good points:

Lots of old and still-used motocross trails in the dyfi fores give great choices of rides, especially after doing an enduro there to see more of the area. Gravity enduro and similar events creating more trails in the forest has also been great, and the popularity of these events must be an economic boost for the area also. Climax is almost all beginner friendly on par with Nant Yr Arian. While I love the last descent it's always seemed out of place compared to the rest which I rarely ride for the most part.

Bad points:

Trail maintainance is voluntary by a few locals I believe, kudos to them, but it's a shame the trails cant get more upkeep. Believe climax had a donation box?

Would you recommend?

Yes

Great quiet trail - going again this weekend

I really like these trails, I have a caravan in Pennal about 4 miles down the road so they're really close. Very quiet trails in a lovely setting. The climach x is the one I normally do & it's fairly quick to get round. You do end up after the climach x with a proper cheesy grin on your face & the last 2-3k is fantastic. There are no facilities to speak of so I think that's why it's getting lower reviews (had to give it 2.5 as there is a small car park). There is a great pub in Corris a mile or so away - the slaters arms - good food & beer & worth a visit. http://www.theslatersarms.com/

Good points:

Quiet, fun, different rides for abilities & length, beautiful setting

Bad points:

Can be hard to find if you're not used to Wales but I think that keeps it quiet.

Dyfi - lots to do

Its a while since I did these trails and I remember at the time thinking I'd need several days to have a proper look - really do need to go back and see what I've missed.

Good points:

FAST!

Bad points:

Nothing major.
