The best mountain biking in North Wales is the kind that’ll have you coming back time and time again. With a dramatic coastline and the epic peaks of Snowdonia National Park, the diversity of landscape is exceptional. You can ride gravel trails through mountain valleys, take on fast singletrack switchbacks in hilly woodlands and relax with a coffee and a Welsh cake at a friendly cafe. Despite its mountainous nature, there are plenty of flatter trails ideal for children and those newer to the sport so have no fear, there are MTB routes to suit everyone.


Some of the best MTB routes in North Wales are found in the forest of Coed Y Brenin with white-knuckle trails as well as family-friendly loops. In the heart of Snowdonia there are plenty of trails with tough climbs, exhilarating descents, stunning singletrak and unforgettable views. To the east, the Clwydian Range is awash with trails and bridleways and the twin reservoirs of Brenig and Alwen offer wonderful family routes.
