The Yr Afon Trail at Coed-y-Brenin takes in some of the most picturesque parts of the River Mawddach. You will pass the gold mines of Gwynfynedd and go along the length of the river valley. One for all the family to enjoy. It’s a relatively low level route on forest roads with no singletrack sections, but includes a short section of constructed track leading from the centre.
TIt also includes a heavily pot-holed longer section of private road. There are a couple of short steepish climbs. Take care on the return as there is a steep forest road descent so control your speed.
