Coed Trallwn & Elan Valley, Mid Wales

This centre, established in 2003 nestles in the mountains between the Irfon valley (2 miles south) with Llanwrtyd Wells, and the Elan Valley (5 miles north) with its 5 reservoirs, both long-time mountain biking areas.

In this remote part of Wales where population densities are measured in km² per person rather than vice-verse, the 15km of trails at Coed Trallwm serve as the starting point for the more ambitious to explore some of the wilderness beyond on the ancient bridleways and drovers roads which cross the 400km² empty quarter between Rhayader, Tregaron and Cwmystwyth where nobody lives any more. This includes the spectacular Doethie Valley below the Llyn Brianne Resevoir.
