Trails: Yr Afon, Coed y Brenin, Wales

This is a new trail taking 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. It also includes a heavily pot-holed longer section of private road. There are a couple of rocky, steepish climbs which may be difficult for some families to ride up.
