“The Beast’s best mate misses out the extra loop back at the start, but still fits in all the best bits from Big Doug onwards. A stunning 31.km day route with everything from super techy rock sections and ripping descents to stunning mountain views.”
Here’s one of those understated, quietly classic trails that always seems to surprise you at just how good it is.
The hard start leaves you under no illusions that your skills better be up to scratch, but then leads you into the sublime DreamTime where the flow feels so easy, you’ll be day dreaming about this throughout the weeks daily grind!
Big Dough leads you through the towering Douglas Firs, the Kings of Coed y Brenin. Ride Hermon as fast as you dare, before the big climb to the highest point in the forest. The five sections of downhill fun on the Adams Family reward you for all your efforts.
The Coed y Brenin mountain bike trails are managed and maintained by Natural Resources Wales. Car parking at Coed y Brenin costs £1 for 1 hour, £3 for 3 hours or £5 for the day – the money collected goes towards maintaining and improving the trails.
