Which loop at coed-y-brenin?
I have to visit Dolgellau for work and hope to tie in a quick visit to coed. The mbwales site shows 5 or so loops at the centre but which to go for….looking for perhaps a 3 hour ride at a reasonable speed.
And maybe then a shorter, more of a blast loop, time permitting?

3hrs will probably be a bit tight for The Beast, unless you take in a couple of short cuts (straight up the tarmac after the mid way cafe is a good one). I’d probably do the MBR, the Cyflym Coch, and finish off with the last two descents of the Tarw (leave the first fire road on the other side of the A470 at the inbound sign).If you want more after that, the final descents of the Beast can be accessed by following the fire road past Go Ape’s place, and turning left when you reach the junction.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Beast is the iconic loop IMO and doable in 3 hours but it seems a shame, it’s a great loop to amble round. andeh’s would be spot on I reckon.
And if you’ve got any spare time loop Badger-Beginning of the End-etc, it’s a nice short loop and packed with good bits.Posted 4 years agomaurizioMember
Having just spent a week there- going back today 🙁 – i’d recommen start of mbr I.e. through to bugsy, a quick ride to the top to do begining of the end followed by glide and the like. Then if you have time, mantrap/pins&needles and follow down is an ace way to finish! (you can squeeze in ‘lifes good’ on the way over)
All sign posted, buts its only £3 for a map pack. A lazy way to finish is the pumptrack/berm start of the minatour which is c. 2km nothing challenging just fast n funPosted 4 years ago
