Both the Blue Scar and Penhydd trails start from Afan Forest Park Visitor Centre car park and share the first initial climb. The Blue Scar then branches off providing a flowing but smooth blue loop that crosses a wooden boardwalk, providing an opportunity to move on from the Rookie. Blue Scar is great for riders to progress from beginners to intermediates and is a great trail to improve technical riding skills.
Where the Blue Scar branches off, the Penhydd continues to climb, warranting the red grading. The trail offers some of the old time favourites but also some new sections of fast flowing trail; with a few twisty sections and berms, it will leave riders wanting another blast.
