Trail Community

The Dragon's Back trail at Coed-y-Brenin is one of those understated quietly classic trails that always seems to surprise at just how good it is.

TIt starts off hard, leaving you under no illusions that your skills better be up to scratch, but then leads you into the sublime Dream Time where the flow feels so easy, you'll be day dreaming about this throughout the weeks daily grind! Big Dug leads you through the towering Douglas Firs, the kings of Coed y Brenin (The King's Wood). Ride Hermon as fast as you dare, before the big climb to the highest point in the forest, with superb views of Snowdonia's mountains and the best series of descents to come. The Adams family, five sections of downhill fun to pay back your efforts.

The Dragon's Back, an iconic Welsh trail that has matured well and can be appreciated with fellow souls over a pint of locally brewed real ale. Iechyd da/cheers!
