Mountain biking in north Wales
Wales claims many of the best and most famous mountainbike trails in the world. A number of these are in Snowdonia and in Gwynedd.
The famous trails of Coed-y-Brenin forest, south of Trawsfynydd are only 10 miles from Maentwrog.
Further south is the Machynlleth Cli-machx trail in Dyfi forest, with the longest descent in all of Wales.
Mount Snowdon itself is home to one of the most technical and difficult trails, which will test your skills to the limit, but awards you with spectacular views from the top of Wales' highest peak.
