Gwydir Maw & Bach trails. 

The 25km Gwydir Mawr Trail is a proper mountain bike trail in every sense of the term. Big climbs, big descents, brilliant singletrack and truly awesome scenery make this a trail to remember. Most, but not all, of the climbs are on forest roads and tracks giving you time to take in the views of the mountains of Snowdonia, and all of the descents are on the sweetest singletrack. The singletack varies from very tight, technical and rocky to wonderfully open and flowing, from dark forest to exposed ridgelines.

It incorporates the shorter Gwydir Bach trail, which is a 8.7km version taking between 45 to 90 minutes to complete.

There is a diversion in place on the Gwydir Mawr Trail as ‘Dwsin Drwg’ section is closed due to felling.
