The 10 best places to ride a mountain bike in Wales

Coed Llandegla

Llandegla is one of the largest privately owned trail centres in North Wales and has a choice of four trails as well as a skills area and pump track. It benefits from being continuously developed and maintained, and alongside the main trails there are also optional loops to help add even more variety. All the trails are enclosed within the forest and are rideable in all weathers, plus there’s a good visitor centre where you can also hire bikes should you need to.


Green Trail – 5km – Developed specifically with families in mind avoiding major climbs and technical sections. Should take around 30 mins to 2 hours.
Blue Trail – 12km – Offers a gradual climb, a great option for those who want to test out a few smaller features before progressing onto other routes. Should take around 1-2 hours.
Red Trail – 18km – Starting off on the same climb as the blue before splitting off on to a more technical route including switchbacks, whoops, water crossings, boardwalk and jumps. Should take around 1-3 hours.
Black Trail – 21km – Offering steeper downhill stretches and more technical features. As well as steep climbs it has steps, gaps, drops and timber structures. Should take about 2-4 hours.

The video below gives you an idea of the kind of trails on offer at Llandegla.

Random fact: 50% of the Welsh Black Grouse population lives within one mile of the forest.
