I’ve built what I want to ride
Single Black Diamond
50 Hits starts in the path of the RAF Low Fly Zone, with over 8 mins of flowing table tops this track is best suited to Enduro bikes.
Fast rollers see you into a berm-to-berm gap before one of the biggest hits on the track; then it's onto the fast fly-offs before a section of berms that spit you out into the woods where the real jumps start.
The Big Table
At the brow of the hill. You see the lip and that’s it - boost high off the hip take-off, or send the straight table top - photos look epic!
Big Wide Fast Berm
Flat out over the crest of the mountain. Dropping in at warp speed you get a last look at the view before you hit the main tables in the trees.
Run Of Tabletops
Count them! big, small and kicky… they’ll throw you perfectly into the berms, so you’ll feel like a legend in the air! Carry speed thru the last and boost high to clear
Catch your breath at the first huge roundwood timber bridge on the jump line crafted from our own trees by Olly Davey
A technical BMX style hip to take you into the bottom of 50 hits.
After more than 40 jumps and tables you’re suddenly into some steep tech rooty turns before the finish - a last chance to catch you out or get you buzzing
Double Black Diamond
The first track to be built on the bike park. At over 6 mins long with everything from fast rocky sections, big jumps and steep gullies, this track is the most varied track on the hill.
Original DH starts out technical with rocky, rooty drops and berms then gets fast and fun, spitting you out into three big table tops before sending you over the iconic bridges. Try the Road Gap, then step up onto the largest roundwood timber bridge in the park before you drop into an off camber traverse and the steeps of the final section.
1st Drop 1st Rocks
The first rock drop is tech, spot your landing over the root and pop it.
The most fun jumps ever - the views here are epic...
SPLIT - stick RIGHT to continue onto the DH track…
Road Gap & Bridge
HOLD YOUR SPEED across this wooden road crossing as you are sent into the biggest bridge in the forest –The feeling as your float onto it is out of this world …
Beef Step Up
Off the bridge and over a table top, you hit BEEF step up, one of the most fun step ups in the park
Steep rocky chutes litter the bottom of the DH track, you'll have to be balanced and on point to ride these!
The final steep berms of the track, setup and commitment are key here, let the bike roll and you've conquered it!
Double Black Diamond
Named by the World Cup racers who use this 5 minute track to train, this track is high speed all the way with some of the most fun corners on the mountain.
Fast rocky sections lead into 3 table tops before dropping into tight corners that shoot you into more tight corners. Bermed and rutted, with natural senders and flat out bus stops, this track races down hill at a perfect gradient and it’s easily ridden on a trail bike. The lower section is wild with steep chutes and catch berms.
The Start Hill
This is where it begins. 400m of elevation and a 5 minute track, are you ready?
Off the start hill, two of the hardest features on the whole park, these rock drops require full commitment but with an option round the side
The first jumps built on the park – they still ride amazing!
Berms and Turns
Split left and you'll be shot into wickedly tight turns and berms amongst the trees, totally different to the open space 10 seconds before… Hit them hard!
The locals’ favourite...boost a knuckle and send it into the rooty landing, swapping as you land, … this seemingly innocent section is so fun when you’re slightly out of control
Pipe Road Gap
A fun little road gap into a huge G-out turn, one of the best features on the whole park.
Triple Black Diamond
Nestled beneath the huge ridgeline with unrivalled views across the landscape and named for its natural bedrock slabs, the Slab Track offers an alternative top section to the race track and is a technical challenge from the start!
At the top of this track fierce bedrock slabs cut a tempting line through the clear fell. Tight corners and tech drops lead you into a dive down steep chutes and through wide Scotts Pines before the challenge of The Slab. A sixty foot slab of bedrock tips you flat out into a wide, fast flowing section before you hit the fire road for a breather and drop into Lower Slab and down to the Race Track.
These first few slabs are tech rock rollers that'll have you wondering … but you'll be good if you stick to your line!
Drop into Corner
A beauty little drop into a tight bermed corner - you have to hop over a rock and land perfectly precise before the turn, not for the faint hearted!
Steep Chute Turns
Get your braking correct, get your body position correct, and you'll be buzzing!
A 60ft, smooth as butter, bedrock slab, trust your tyres to make it across this slab rubber side down and shoot into the open
Because all you will be doing is grinning! A fast flowing section with a fast fly off thrown in, well earned reward for the tech slab track above.
Hit a flowy singletrack and a mini jump line to connect to the bottom of RACETRACK
Traversing the edge of the ridgeline at the top of Super Swooper you can see for miles! Enjoy uninterrupted views of the valleys and hills below - and watch out for the RAF jets that often fly below you in the Dyfi Valley! Five minutes of the most fun you can have on a bike!
Rail the berms & enjoy that flowing feeling then launch yourself into some small but perfectly formed jumps before finishing with more berms and the flat-out exhilaration of riding the shred road!
The Upper Flowing Berms
These super swooping berms are the most flowing, most fun berms we’ve ever ridden! They’ll have you feeling like you’re flying!
The Top Tree Berms
After the open & flowing upper berms, you’ll suddenly enter the trees. The berms tighten slightly, continuing the ridiculous level of fun. Berm after berm after Berm – it’s heaven.
Three huge wooden tunnels built using our own timber to take you safely under 50 hits and Original DH
A couple of small, easy table tops that are perfectly placed to give you the confidence to start jumping, or if you’re already there, scrub the lip or send it large!
Jump in Jump Out
Halfway down the Super Swooper you’ll find the first small jumps. Jump into the berm and jump out again, or pump in, rail and pump out...
The Orange Berms
A quick section of orange clay. This part of the track has dreamy dirt with some really fast and easy berms- go as quick as you like!
El Hippo is our Lower Mountain trail, with a start above the Dyfi Timber sawmill. At half the length of our full trails it’s the perfect track to warm up, warm down or for party laps with the mates! Once you’re up to speed you can ride El Hippo in two and a half minutes linking in with the bottom of 50 Hits jump line to shred the last few tables.
El Hippo packs a lot of punch in its shorter length. Super-fast berms, hip-jumps, technical rocks and roots and the Chute! Then a bonus section of 50 Hits!
Starting amongst the oak trees these first berms are rad. Long, super fast and mint fun - rail the berms and feel your grin spreading!
Flow through even more berms amongst the huge trees, rail them all the way.
Two rather large Hip Jumps left, right, easy to roll up, ride across and back down the landing - or perfect to launch high and wide for that ultimate dipped in photo with a stunning backdrop!
A slightly more technical wood section but still perfectly manageable, a few roots and bedrock to keep you on your toes!
Take the left line for a short wiggle between the rocks, or swoop right to take the berm around the outside…
Lower 50 hits
Stop for a breather, check it’s clear and get ready to join the 50hits jump line fun for the last 30 seconds of your run!
Pro-line/Triple Black Diamond
Dan wanted to create a jump line that would raise the bar for UK riding, maximum airtime, 100% thrills all the way. Oakley were the perfect partner to help bring that vision to life.
Everything cool we’ve ever ridden packed into a 1km upliftable jump line. The tracks BMX roots show in the surfaced finish and tall BMX lips drops. There are hips, bridges and booters – make sure you style it up for some brilliant photo opportunities.
This is pretty crazy. Go in fast, then chill. Our 16 foot drop tips you into a 60 foot catch berm with plenty of air time for the best tricks you can bring. The lower platform has a 9 foot vertical drop.
Off the drop, speed tuck round the corner and hit the step up fast, go big to make the most of the prime photo opportunities with an amazing view of the park and the iconic Oakley O.
Straight after the trick jump hit a chill spot, two cranks onto the bridge then chill for a 12 foot drop across the road and into a big right hand catch berm.
Triple lip/ triple fun. Hit the middle section first for a longer mellower lip then move to the steeper sides to get high and get sideways. Make like our dig crew and hit the sides at the same time as your mate.
The Big 50
Take this on the diagonal – fifty foot forward and fifteen foot to the right. Clear the little table to set you up perfectly to go high and land on the bank or use the smaller lip on the left. Whichever you chose whip right!
One Minute In The Sky
The last jump on the track and the biggest airtime on the park, but beware, this is a seriously big jump. Start on the left and work up for endless trick potential, our 80 foot landing gives you lots of space to commit. “One minute” completes 1 km of insane jumps and leaves you pumped for more.
Turns in the Ferns expands our offering with a red-graded, lower mountain track. Ideal for shorter laps to ease you into the day or ease down after a hard afternoon’s riding, especially when the winter weather at the top of the mountain gets wild!
One kilometre of some of the fastest and most fun sections in the Park, with berms, fades, shark-fins and a lot of fun crammed into its short length with the added bonus of re-joining 50 Hits for the bottom section!
Turns in the Ferns
Put in a couple of pedal strokes off the start to set you up for these for these swooping berms. The turns are tight but you’ll find plenty of flow as you thread your way between the oaks.
Out of the turns into one of the fastest sections on the bike park, two fades over two blind rises will make you feel like you’re floating above the ground - hold it down hard and ease off the brakes!
After the fades hit a shark fin to the right, shark fin to the left then tuck into a long and fast left-hander. This is an amazing section to practise building your speed.
As you enter the woods the track changes from mainly machine built to handcrafted by the shovels and picks of our dig crew. A few natural rocks and roots change the pace and add some technicality to the trail.
Stay on the main trail for an easier route or opt-in to a big technical drop that will set you up with plenty of speed for the next awesome left-hander.
Smash into this steep berm and trust that it will carry you around the turn for a super-fast finale to our red track before you re-join 50 Hits for another 90 seconds of fun.
Triple Black Diamond
Short, steep and natural. Fire in the Booth is an off piste track that splits off to the left of El Hippo for a challenging alternative route back to the carpark.
Start off on a fast, steep, and rocky ridge. Then g-out into two big turns, a fast straight, and drop into the steep tech. This hand-built track is all about linking the steep techy turns, and finding lines which will change on every run. Fire in the Booth has loads of off camber bedrock, natural roots and is probably the steepest part of the park.
Fast steep and rooty then a high speed drop into a left-Right turn that fires you out at top speed!
Very steep, very techy. This Off Camber right hand turn on the bedrock will test you - don’t touch the brakes!
Rooty, rocky and narrow, commit fully to the right-hander at the bottom or end up in the crash-netting! If you keep it pinned the catch berm will fire you successfully into the next section and one step closer to the carpark.
