a few 90 degree turns then straight down the hill (fast). left into first of 2 berms , shiccane, down straight again, over a few little kickers to make stopping harder, into right hand berm followed imediately by a big left hand berm which turns down the hill. Over a 6ft speed jump double then a jump onto a bouncy narrow homemade bridge, then a small double out of that (quite hard to keep it all flowing through all of that lot). Short sprint upto 6ft speed double then another sprint to a triple. A few fast flowing berms, 5ft drop into clearing, blind left (you can not see the stumps until you are hitting the floor!) If you are still on the bike you now have to pedal at top speed down a 60 meter stump covered technical section which ends with a small compression at top speed.

Summary:
whilst visiting my grandparents in abergele, i walked tot he castle to have a look and found the long track going to the top it took me quite a while to get the top by foot and saw a small trail going off to the left i followed it and found lots of burms an couple of small jumps and a lot of obsticles, i have very limited downhilling experience and found it amazing and exilherating although it was quite small but it was very fast.

Recommended Route:
walk past the castle go over the gate follow it turn left follow the track turn right and go off left up a smaller track, go right up until you find and opening to the top of the mountain and then enjoy

Summary:
the trails are being built up.the dual track has been extended with new jumps and berms,there is also a new 3ft drop off in it aswel.
The main jump area is ok but the motorbikes wreck it sometimes.Gradually getting better.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Marin trail in llanrwst
Nannerch DH run in nannerch belive it or not.

Summary:
This area is no track like Gwydir or coed-y-Brenin but it is a good size area with a lot of diffrent little tracks to ride on and a good selection of jumps to play on,I have never had any trouble with walkers or golfers and I ride their quite often, as long as your polite to them no one seems to mind you being their, anyway it's privately owned by a bloke in the U.S who dosen't give a monkeys about the place so if anyone says you should'nt be their, their talking through their backside.

Summary:
Went there once. Rubbish. Broken glass all over, cut my bloody leg. Trails are rubbish boring crap. Better riding in my grans garden. Some official shouted to us about trespassing, and about being fined, so with that we buggered off.

Recommended Route:
better off in your own garden. More fun.
