Guybe, i didn't mean the DH course, there is a small section at the top where you turn left and onto it, you would've gone right into the roller coaster bit. If you go straight on there, there is 3 wooden drop offs which roll down then up into the corkscrew/tunnel. This then spits you out into a load of doubles [ not very good one's ] and then to the wooden wall ride before the bottom which is where you end up
All very do-able on a rigid bike.
You must try it
its closed for maintenance & has been for a few weeks. try doing the biggest wooden drop at night, its easy in the daylight
the double jumps had been massively eroded by people not clearing them, 1 of the reasons the section is closed & being rebuilt. I prefer the 3 table tops as they've got a lot more lip.
the entire section both the xc loop & "freeride" section are both closed, you have to stay on the fireroad & re-join the trail at carpark 2.
yes the trails are exceptionally dry & have been as soon as the snow cleared around 4weeks ago. cwmcarn is an awesome little trail, & theres a lot more variety in the surrounding mountains
I see a lap time of 1hr 40mins mentioned. Incase you were wondering, I believe the current lap record is by one my mates, anthony oboyle at 36minutes.
Look for a coming feature in MBUK out april 8th about cwmcarn & trails in the near surronding area.
