Rookie Trail

The Rookie Trail    Cognation MTB Trails South Wales

This is a perfect introductory route for newcomers with a wide trail and slightly sweeping declines.  The skills area that can be found on the trail offers riders the opportunity to develop their technical riding skills.

A winding, swerving and meandering trail, the Rookie  trail is built in sections, allowing riders to experience as much or as little as they want.

At the end of the green trail, there is an optional 2.6km blue graded loop that provides a taster for those wishing to progress.  Dropping down to the River Afan the loop exposes some secret spots.

Picnic areas can be found along the trail, so feel free to bring a packed lunch!
