The Trans Cambrian Way Day 3 Details
The third and final day on the Trans Cambrian long distance mtb trail takes you from Llangurig, through the Hafren Forest and crossing the infant River Severn before crossing the flanks of Pumlumon and eventually, by the least direct route to the shores of the Dyfi and what is technically the Irish Sea to complete your journey across Wales.
It is by a hair’s breadth the easiest day on the trip, but by no means is this an easy day!
The Trans-Cambrian Way is a proper mountain bike trail. If you want a route that’s not a manufactured, waymarked trail and prefer your days to involve a bit of navigation then this is an ideal trail. Note we said the plural of Day – this is a three day route for the fit, two days (or even one!) for the elite and five or six days for mere mortals.
The links below have a couple of well written articles about this route which are well worth reading as an armchair mtbiker or for planning the route.
