Summary:
fast and flowing, fairly easy up hill sections, excellent hips and some nice rocky drop offs. Best bet is to go when it's dry, can be a bit of a chore in the wet, then again! what isn't!

I just wish all these man made trails weren't so off camber, in the dry it's ok, but in the wet- a death trap.

Recommended Route:
Whites Level

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All the routes in Port Talbot are really good and far more challenging than Cwm Carn- which is in the same area- approx 40 miles east.

Summary:
Went there for the day with my club and we did both tracks, 1 in the morning n 1 after lunch. both tracks were really good and well worth visiting

Recommended Route:
Do the route thats on the sunny side if its quite cold and then swap when the sun moves round

Summary:
Two cracking trails, both well thought out, well maintained and well sign-posted. A real gem of a spot close to both Cardiff and Swansea.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cwmcarn. Also see '9ft.com'.
