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.
