Cycling Routes in Cwm Gwendraeth

Did you know that you can access a cycle path that runs from Crosshands to Llanelli via Tumble and Horeb.

A wonderful 19km or 12 miles of off-road path follows the route of the historic Llanelli and Mynydd Mawr Mineral Railway through the beautiful countryside of the Gwendraeth Valley.

The route is mostly flat, with a tarmac surface and easily accessible and total time is around 2 hours each way (the whole route)

  • There is on-road car parking at Horeb or you can ask at the pub.
  • At Tumble there is on-road parking along the trail and by the Family Centre where the trail crosses the B4310
  • You can also park on-road at Cynheidre where there is access to the path.
  • You can park on-road in Crosshands where there is access to the path

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all your work on FIS Carmarthenshire Website. I'm working on pulling together some information for a local initiative to educate children and teens on the consequences of drugs and alcohol. I'm working on preparing a pamphlet, and I've learned a lot from your page. I noticed that you had some really great resources. Well done!
