The new, black-graded Raven mountain biking trail is now open at BrechfaForest in the Welsh county of Carmarthenshire.
The new trail cost £80,000 and is part of the £500,000 granted to the Brechfa Bike Project by European Objective 1, a European Union financing programme aimed at increasing economic prosperity in certain areas of Europe.
The trail’s name refers to a historical link to the ravens in the Tower of London, which are believed to have originally been taken from the BrechfaForest many centuries ago when the area was a royal hunting park.
The new route combines woodland singletrack, big descents, berms, jumps, step-ups, doubles, bombholes, switchbacks, rock gardens and plenty more.
You’re going to need everything in your biking skills inventory to conquer the Raven.
