Coed-y-Brenin forest is 6 miles north of Dolgellau

Coed location map

Coed Y Brennin forest is run by Forest Enterprise and is a network of MTB singletrack and double-track with many of the downhill singletrack's being one way and mountain bike only. The characteristic downhill is very rocky with much of the trail man-made and often steep and technical. There are trails to suit beginners but from the red bull on upwards they are more suited to intermediate and expert riders.

There are three main routes:

The Red Bull

The Pink Heifer

The Karrimor
