place Machynlleth, SY208AY
Dyfi Forest Mountain Bike Trails located near the town of Machynlleth in North Wales is home to a great network of trails, including the Cli-mach X and Mach trails. There's plenty of informal free-riding in the forest, but it isn't waymarked, so take a map or get a local guide.
There is ample parking at the trailhead but the approach ramp is steep and can often be inaccessible during winter. Please park respectfully.
There are no trail head facilities unfortunately, but there are 2 excellent pubs vey nearby, both of which rely on passing trade, so please pop in for a pint or some food if you can.
The Climach-X trail resides in the southern section of the Dyfi forest, 4.6 miles north of Machynlleth on the A487. It's a 15km round trip, with 9km of built single track with compressions and whoops, rock slab drop offs and some beautiful flowing turns.
Please consider joining the local riding association to support trail development & maintenance.
