Y Tri Chwm (The Three Valleys)trail has been developed by local riders in Blaenau Gwent, South Wales. The name was taken from the terrain, as there are 3 major valleys in Blaenau Gwent.
This is a tough cross country route with many different options, it's been designed to be ridden in one direction to give the best ride, but is rideable in either direction. Many of the trails are multi-use so you may meet other users, but this area once an industrial grave yard, which created many great MTB tracks has been returned to nature, very underused it's rare to meet other riders.
The route is a single circuit with options to either take short cuts or ride it in shorter sections over a number of days.
