The Pheasant Track

  • The Pheasant Track

    The Pheasant Track mountain bike trail in North Wales takes in the Ceiriog Valley, Llangollen and the Berwyns. It is graded as technically Hard / Difficult and is 20.1 miles long. It starts from Glyn Ceiriog in Wrexham County, North Wales. It uses trails in the Ceiriog Valley to the south and west of Glyn Ceiriog, which includes the Pheasant Track across Bryn Du. The route is about 40% tarmac but this is generally on the flat and the climbs, which helps reserve your energy for the fantastic off-road sections. It kicks off from the car park by the community centre (GR204379)
