Course description:Blue 4.8K 300m climb Green 3.6K 165m climb Orange 2.0K 90m climb Yellow 1.5K 65m climb Yellow and orange courses are difficult to plan on this area. One leg on the Yellow course follows an earthwall rather than a path. Both courses may have a marked route and smiley faces. The courses involve stream crossings where you are likely to get wet feet. Blue and Green courses cross Tyn-y-coed Road twice. The road must be crossed at the marked crossing point. Running down the road is forbidden. Safety: Competitors take part at their own risk. A whistle is highly recommended. A hooded waterproof jacket may be compulsory in the event of bad weather. The area is heavily used by dog walkers, often with a large number of noisy dogs. Mountain bikers also use the area. Please be courteous to other users of the area.
