The Penmachno Trails are the hidden gem of North Wales mountain biking; 30km of super-sweet single-track and scenic forest trail, riding high through Snowdonia National Park.

The trails are split into two loops, which can be ridden individually or as one amazing 30km ride. Be warned, if you do ride the complete circuit, just as you get your breath back from the descents on Loop 1 the views on Loop 2 will take it away again!

Once you’ve ripped round the trails don’t forget to ‘pay back your dirt’; the trails are managed by a local community group (Menter Bro Machno), and are funded by donations from bikers and maintained by volunteers. Check out how you can help to support the trail.
