Around Llyn Brenig – The Lake and a Bit Details

If you fancy a long mtb route that’s not overly technical, with a few bits of easier going roads then this is an ideal route. Starting off at the Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre, you follow minor roads, forestry trails and cross moorlands in a route that takes in all that the Mynydd Hiraethog area has to offer.

You will also pass the Sportsmans’ Arms pub, which may or may not be open for you when you pass. At over 450m, it’s certainly one of the highest pubs in Wales.
