This is a 13 mile mountain bike route follows the old winter and summer pack-horse routes in the mountains behind Barmouth, in Southern Snowdonia. The 'Pont Scethin' loop is a classic mountain bike route in the area, with some big climbs, stunning views and technical rocky descending. Although the shortest of the Pont Scethin routes it’s still not an easy undertaking and at highest point you will be very exposed to the elements.
Start from the car park with the public toilets by the main road (GR589217). Turn right out of the car park then immediately go past the entrance to the pub on the right to the next junction with a lane on the right (GR591219). Bear right and climb the lane with the houses on the left and trees on the right to a gate straight ahead by the last house. Go through the gate and climb the double track through the trees for some time to a three way junction (GR597222).
