Coed-y-Brenin

  • Dolgellau and Rhydcriw

    Dolgellau and Rhydcriw mountain bike route is in Snowdonia in North Wales. It is graded difficult and is 30 miles long. It starts on the outskirts of Dolgellau in Wales, just south of Coed-y-Brenin. It follows a figure of eight route along the north and western flanks of Cadair Idris. There is a good mixture of trails from rolling double track to technical rocky sections with a nice bit of singletrack thrown in. There are also a few of long sections of tarmac but they are mostly on (big) climbs, accompanied by the stunning mountainous scenery of southern Snowdonia and the Irish Sea.


    Start from the Mawddach Trail car park just outside Dolgellau on the junction of the A493 and A470 (GR714182)
