Welcome to Cwmdown
Cwmcarn Forest is the destination for all you downhill adrenaline junkies. The Y Mynydd DH track consists of a man-made downhill Trail (with a choice of lines on the top and middle sections), simply named red run and black run. The course demands a high level of skill (and guts). These are extreme downhill trails and are suitable for experienced riders only. You’ll be challenged with loads of berms, a few switch backs, doubles, a tunnel, rock steps, the bridge, hip jump and the quarry gap. The jumps are there if you want them, but can be ridden around if not.
Cwmcarn’s new downhill track ‘Pedalhounds’ follows the line of an old club built trail down a steep sided valley opposite the current Y Mynydd DH track. Access is via the Cafall XC trail or from December 2014 you can use the uplift service. Designed by Rowan Sorrell the trail starts off in tight rooty woods with technical lines through the trees and then flows down over some open jumps and fast, steep turns before dropping back into the woods packed with swooping turns and drops that leads into a wide open and high speed final section down to the Forest Drive where the uplift pick up will be situated and you have the option to return to the car park or the final descent of the Cafall trail.
An uplift pass is available via our online booking system
See you soon, The Cwmdown Team
