Bike Park Wales Trails



We have lovingly created the UK's most incredible network of over 40 trails for riders of all abilities at BikePark Wales.  Swooping bermed runs, tight gnarly rock sections, jump trails, drop offs, a pump track and even a family specific loop. We have a team of 7 professional trail builders maintaining and building new trail all the time so you can be confident no matter what the weather you will experience incredible trail conditions and each time you visit there will be something new to try.

Explore the trail map above and the trail descriptions below, click on trail names and you can view a GoPro POV run of each of our trails to get you psyched for your next visit.

We have graded our trails by colour to indicate the level of difficulty and also separated them into flow trails, technical trails, blend trails and plus trails so you know what kind of terrain and level of difficulty to expect from each trail.  The grading systems are explained below and we recommend you use the trail difficulty index in the link above to work your way from the easiest trails upwards when you feel ready to progress.   Enjoy!!

Please note that as we are constantly working on our trails to maintain and improve them we occasional have to close trails to underatke work. Trails that are currently closed are marked in the trail list below.

Trail Qualifiers

Trail Qualifiers

What are trail qualifiers?
All trails above Blue grade start with a Qualifier feature, these are indicated by this ‘qualifier’ symbol -

Qualifier features are generally not rollable and help to indicate the level of difficulty and rider skill required to tackle the trail, bear in mind there may be more challenging features beyond the trail qualifier. Please look before you ride and don’t attempt trails above your level of ability.

It should be noted that due to the location of qualifiers at, or very near the start of trails, it is not possible to replicate the hardest features that may be encountered on a trail (due to the hill being flattest on top and steeper further down the slope), therefore a qualifier is simply an indication of the type of features you may encounter and the type of skills that you will need in order to be able to ride the trail. If you do not like the look of the qualifier (or choose to push around it) you will not be competent to ride the rest of the trail.

Plus Trails

Plus mountain bike trails

What are Plus trails?
Some trails in the park will be highlighted with a sign to identify that they are ‘plus’ trails.
trails feature a high frequency of BikePark style features such as jumps, drops or gaps that require, or actively encourage, a rider’s wheels to leave the ground.

Without the necessary jumping ability, these trails will pose a consistently higher level of risk.
The trails are colour graded as usual to denote the extent of the challenge of the bikepark style jump and drop features; the colour of the plus symbol will relate to the trail grade. Only ride trails at the appropriate level of difficulty for your ability. Standard graded trails may include some of these features but not to the same frequency, scale or focus as a plus graded trail. Look out for the symbol on the trail maps and trail name boards to help you decide if it is a suitable trail for you.

Plus mountain bike trails

BPW Tech Trails have rougher and more natural trail surfaces featuring a high percentage of natural or organic features: rocks, roots, drops and steeper gradients. Speeds are generally lower than those on BPW Flow Trails.

Plus mountain bike trails

BPW Flow Trails are created with smoother and typically wider trail surfaces and feature a high percentage of berms, jumps or pump features. Overall speeds are higher than those on BPW Tech Trails.

Plus mountain bike trails

BPW Blend Trails contain a true mix of both Tech and Flow trail styles and features. Fast sections of berms and jumps are combined with tighter, steeper and technical riding to make the most varied trails in the park, suited to riders with a fully developed skillset.
