The Penmachno Mountain Bike Trail, south of Betws-y-Coed in North Wales is challenging trail with some steady climbs taking in some more spectacular scenery. Read more

The Penmachno Trails have the perfect mix of singletrack descents & forest climbs (with a few technical climbs thrown in for good measure!). They can be ridden as one 30km route or as a 19km loop (Loop 1), or a 11km loop (Loop 2). Loop 2 branches off from Loop 1 at around the halfway point so, if you're not certain which one to ride start on Loop 1 and see how you feel when you get to the Loop 2 junction!

Dolen Machno (Loop 1) - 19km
This has the fastest descents and biggest climbs, with fast, technical single-track, tight switch-backs and a couple of leg-testing climbs. The fun just never stops!

Dolen Eryri (Loop 2) - 11km
This is all about the flow and the views, with a great mix of sweeping single-track, carving boardwalk, technical pitched stone trail and some of the best views you'll find in the UK. A truly breath-taking ride.

Penmachno Trail (combined Loop 1 & Loop 2) - 30km
This has got it all - 30km of fast descents, flowing singletrack, technical riding & boardwalk plus views across the Snowdonia mountains.
