Good trail for families and novice riders

Review:
A 23 mile circular round the reservoir on a mixture of trail and off-road paths. Nothing very challenging but a pleasant route. A few hills and some bumpy bits.

nice easy day out on the bike

Review:
the main route round the lake is a pleasant little ride with just one or two fun off-road sections (for the most part the route is tarmac or hardpack) and a couple of hills that the less experienced or fit might find a challenge (if you cycle round anticlockwise theres one particularly harsh short but steep climb through some trees)

if you add on the optional 7 mile loop round the peninsula you get the routes only 'real' mountain biking - wide trails but some short sharp climbs and descents and a few cool little swoopy wooded sections

Review:
Ideal place for all the family to have a great days riding. There are 2 great bike shops en route and 5 cafe's and toilet stops too. Nice, quite easy going trails with some quite demanding hills to master. Also great place to get a glimpse of the Ospreys that nest around the lake.
