Crychan Forest and Halfway Forest

Crychan Forest Association logo

Crychan Forest Trails for walkers, cyclist, horse riders and carriage drivers.

The Crychan Forest Association works with the Natural Resources Wales (formally Forestry Commission) to promote access to Crychan and Halfway Forests near Llandovery Carmarthenshire. South West Wales near the Brecon Beacons.

We have installed nearly 200 numbered waymarker posts and published walking trails, family forestry cycle trails and horse riding trails. These individual trails with map are available to download from this website and a large leaflet/map is available at all the major forest car parks. The trails are colour coded and waymarked with numbers and arrows.


Closed Track in Crychan

The track between post 128 and 132 is closed.  Timber stacks are blocking the road and can not be moved until August due to conservation constraints. The track forms part of the Cefn Arthen- Cwm Crychan link Trail

Share the Trail Video

The Share the Trail Video is still relevant. The video shows how dangerous the trails can be if no consideration is given to horse riders and the demonstrates what to do to stay safe.
