This is a 10 mile mountain bike route around Moel Famau in the Clwydian Range, a chain of hills just inside the North Wales border near Chester. The riding on this route, although not very technical, has some fast descents and some very steep grassy climbs. It’s a beautiful route the second half of which is on a permissive bridleway. With the amount of grassy trails on this ride it is best tackled on a dry day.
Start from the Moel Famau lower car park (GR172611). Follow the trail, signed as a cycle route, out the back of the car park almost opposite the entrance barrier. Follow it around to the right, past a junction with a footpath on the left, and straight up to where it meets a fire track on a bend. Climb straight up the fire track. Go straight on at the first junction to the second junction, at the crest (GR178616).
