Cycle Route

Coed y Brenin, Dolgellau


LL40 2HZ


Tel: 0300 0680300

The first and one of the best known mountain biking centres in Wales, Coed y Brenin is run by the Forestry Commission and offers biking for all levels and abilities - from retro, rocky, classics to modern contemporary trails. Choose from the Yr Afon forest road trail which follows the picturesque Mawddach river valley and is suitable for family cycling; or the moderate graded Minotaur trail; the Dragon's Back, Cyflym Coch and Temtiwr - all graded as red trails; or from the technically challenging black trails - the Beast of Brenin, Tarw Ddu and MBR.

Set in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, the scenery along the way is breathtaking with views across to Cadair Idris, glaciated valleys, wild untamed rivers and forest. The purpose-built visitor centre offers hot drinks, snacks, bike hire and a fully equipped shop.
