place Coed y Brenin Mountain Bike Trail Centre, Dolgellau, LL40 2HY
The MinorTaur Trail aims to introduce new mountain bikers to 'singletrack' off-road cycling. It will bridge the current gap at Coed y Brenin between forest road mountain biking and the red grade 'difficult' trails.
Loop one is 3km long with 50m of climbing, heading out from the visitor centre along "First Steps" before descending the sweeping multi-bermed "Slipway", an awesome feat of engineering and design carved into the hillside, and returning to the centre along a forest road in the valley bottom, following the Afon Eden river.
Loop two continues from the end of the Slipway and follows a level forest road out to the Pont Cae'n y Coed car park, where riders can admire the stunning views down the Afon Mawddach gorge before continuing along the "Jurassic" and "Tax Return" singletracks and joining the forest road back to the start, having covered 5km with 90m of climbing.
Please note: Distance is calculated as air distance or "as the crow flies" the most direct route between two points, so the distance by road maybe slightly longer.
