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.
