Cilcain and the Vale of Clwyd mountain bike route is in the Clwydian Range in North Wales. It is graded as technically moderate and is 18 miles long. It takes in the low trails to the east of Moel Famau, on the way to Cilcain. After climbing to the ridge of the Clwydian Range the second half follows trails used in my 'Moel Famau and the Vale of Clwyd' route. The ride is more challenging than the Moel Famau route as the trails to Cilcain, and the descent into the Vale of Clwyd, are a bit more tricky. It's also 2 miles longer. Pretty much rideable all year round but muddy when wet.
It start from the Moel Famau lower car park (GR172611).
