Get on your bike and be one of the first to take part in the Mawddach Goldrush Trail Race. This new event takes place on 5 April and involves trails of a distance of 9 miles or so through the gorgeous landscapes of Coed y Brenin. Coed y Brenin, a beautiful forest in the Snowdonia National Park, became the first dedicated mountain biking trail centre in the UK, with the first races being held back in 1991. There are biking trails suitable for every level of ability ranging from a road trail in the picturesque Mawddach Valley to Black Grade trails to challenge the most experienced rider.
Even if biking is not your thing, Coed y Brenin is still a great location for family day out with many activities on offer. There are family friendly walking trails, running trails, orienteering sessions and geocaching. Forest Rangers are on hand in the visitor centre to offer advice on how to get the most out of your visit and the centre includes a café and picnic area which overlook the play areas for children of all ages. Along with the visitor centre and café the forest is also host to a GoApe Tree Top Adventure where you can enjoy high level tree top crossings and exhilarating zip-wire descents!
