Penmachno MTB Trail Details

Lesser known and less publicised Red Route in Penmachno near Betws y Coed. It can be split into two sections – the Dolen Eryri and the Dolen Machno, or better still ridden in one gluttonous ride!

The Route A challenging route with plenty of ascent that consists of the two separate Machno loops of Dolen Machno and Dolen Eryri. More info and maps available via the following links – Machno and Eryri. If you want a taster before you set off then check this video out for more details of the Dolen Machno section.
