Rhoberll Fawr

Mountain Biking

An entertaining 24km ride on high mountain tracks with a dose of adventure thrown in for good measure. Wide views, intimate navigation and a feeling of remoteness complete the atmosphere of this ride. The route initially heads off eastwards on a mixture of narrow roads and bridleway, before turning north on another minor road which soon turns into a track and passes through a small wood east of the summit of Moel Cors-y-garnedd. The route continues northwards on the eastern flank of Rhoberll Fawr and passes through a large forest where some careful navigation is required. An open section with good views of the Rhinogau to the north follows, and then it’s back south for some more forest areas. The final section takes you out onto open moorland (as the trail passes over Bwlch Goriwared) and then drops you back down to Llanfachreth.

The route is quite remote so make sure you have a map and compass, plenty of food and water, plus adequate clothing and bike spares. You should also tell someone of your intentions and estimated return time, just to be sure.


This is a wild mountain biking route as opposed to a purpose built trail, and as such it can be very challenging in poor weather conditions. In the very worst winter conditions the higher sections of the route may be blocked by drifting snow.


Start from the car park just east of the school in Llanfachreth.
