Nice AM-ish loops near Coed-Y-Brenin
Will be in the area in a few months with friends, and would like to do a nice day out in the mountains on the bike, away from trail centres and the like – are there any nice loops in and around Snowdon, etc? Nice techy descents, nice views, keep an somewhat unfit crew happy for four or five hours?Posted 4 years agomrhoppySubscriber
Pont scethin can be linked to from CyB centre go out along ponderosa & dreamtime, then r along the road, over the Eden and then up the Gamlan, there’s a track that crosses to the a bank and runs over to Llyn Cwm Mynach, there’s a bridle way between Garth gell and Hendreforion which drops you into the scethin loop.Posted 4 years agomindmap3Member
I know it goes against the not a trail centre comment, but I did the Beast for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed it. The trail was in good condition despite the weather and pretty much empty.
Some of the rocky sections were pretty good fun and the later singletrack sectiosn were fun too (and felt quite natural). Only bit I wasn’t too fussed about were the fire road climbs.
Aside from that, I don’t really know the area that well to recomend other routes.Posted 4 years ago
iolo – Point Scethin I find to be more ‘hilly’ than mountain at least on one side. Cadair only gets really mountainous towards the top, lower down its all grassy singletrack on fairly gentle incline with some fire roads…but yes Cadair by its definition is a mountain.Posted 4 years ago
