i haven't ridden it recently, but it always holds up ok like all other south wales trail centres. more rocks that roots, but nothing too major. if you've ridden cwmcarn or afan expect more of the same.

It's really slippery when wet, think it's the mud washing over the slate and hard packed bits. The raven trail is particularly muddy on the climbs.

Always rideable though, just needs weight over the front in the berms.
