Ystwyth Trail

activities / Cycling

Lonely Planet review

Suitable for cyclists and walkers, this 20-mile waymarked route mainly follows an old rail line from Aberystwyth southeast to Tregaron, at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains. For the first 12 miles it shadows the River Ystwyth, while at the end it enters the Teifi Valley. At the Aberystwyth end you can pick up the trail from the footbridge on Riverside Tce; although you'll get more downhills if you start from Tregaron.
