Red/Difficult Mountain Biking Trails
Like your biking a little more challenging? Then you’ll find a good choice of places to really test your skills and nerves.
The Penmachno Trail offers three single track and forest road biking routes which can be ridden as separate routes or combined to make one technically and stamina challenging route through the Gwydyr Forest. The Marin Trail has a bit of everything - big climbs, big descents, single track and forest roads – as well as great views of the mountains of Snowdonia.
Tough at the Top lives up to its name – a steady climb of 1500m from Bod Petryal up to the high moorlands and Llyn Brenig, and an exhilarating descent on single track. The Two Lake Tour starts in the village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr, crosses the Clocaenog Forest up to Alwen Reservoir and onto Llyn Brenig with some great views along the way.
