Heads up

Tirpentwys Trails are unofficial tracks, please familiarise yourself with the Trail Rules & Etiquette, and always walk the trails first to make sure you’re riding to your ability. There’s a chilled out vibe at the trails and we’d like to keep it that way.

We have hand crafted a hillside in Pontypool to feature 6 mountain bike trails for riders of a competent ability. The trails feature steep swooping berms, jumps, drop offs, and a session area to hone your skills. We have a team of voluntary trail builders of all ages helping to maintain and building new trails.


Please note: that as we are constantly working on our trails to maintain and improve them we occasional have to close trails to undertake work. Follow us on Facebook for our latest closures.
