Pembrey Country Park

 

As I had to visit Carmarthen I took my bike and travelled on to Pembrey Country Park.
Route ( not that accurate as I did wander about the park down various trails, but managed 11 miles)
I parked up at the first woodland parking site near the railway bridge and cycled towards the main entrance and then took NCN route 4.  Unfortunately about a mile into the routethe trail was flooded for quite a stretch (since found out that this is a known problem but without a solution as yet) and so I turned back and entered the park.

Flooded area
Unless entering by car the entrance is free with a huge area to explore including a vast expanse of beach, Cefn Sidan and a nature reserve.
View point
I visited the ski slope and the toboggan slide, the latter looking like good fun. There was a party of disabled skiers on the slopes who were clearly enjoying the experience.
From there I cycled up and down various routes before heading back for the car. Sitting on the grass was a party of army cadets having a brew before they marched – some hobbling into the woods.

One thought on “Pembrey Country Park

  1. Some familiar territory there for me. It was a most enjoyable part of my walk until the end of the day when I had problems getting myself into the centre of Carmarthen. You certainly seem to have good cycling venues where you are.
