Mountain Biking at Cwmcarn Forest

The Twrch Trail has it all, testing climbs, swooping descents and demanding technical sections. There is 15.5km of almost pure single-track to get your oulse racing. Best of all the Twrch Trail is FREE and can be ridden all year.

Walking

Experience some of the best walking in Wales with our self-guided walks for all abilities, which take in the wildlife and Cwmcarn Forest’s beautiful views. The more energetic can walk all the way to Twmbarlwm hillfort with its staggering panoramic views.

Glamping Pods & Campsite

If you like the idea of camping, but not the bugs, then the timber framed Pod is your saviour. Just bring along your camping gear but no need to pack the tent. The veranda is partially covered, so perfect for enjoying a meal or relaxing with a glass of wine. Ideal for a short break or over night stay without the hassle of packing away a wet tent.

Nestling alongside the banks of the Nantcarn stream is the Visit Wales 4 star graded Campsite. A well-equipped caravan and camping park with space for tents or caravans, with electric hook up, kitchen, laundry room, shower and toilet facilities and chemical waste disposal.

Free to enter the visitor centre and valley floor. Forest Drive currently closed due to removal of infected larch trees.
