This long and enjoyable route is a must do for any keen mountain biker. The middle 30km gives some of the best exploring that can be done on a mountain bike in Wales. An absolute classic, which is both wild and remote, but never threatening. The route is named after the memorial (passed en-route) to the 80 year old ‘Wayfarer’ who died at the spot in 1956 while out walking and exploring the area.
The route passes through the village of Glyndyfrdwy, which is famous for its association with none other than the legendary Owain Glyndŵr, the man who proclaimed himself Prince of Wales in 1400. Glyndŵr carried out an audacious fourteen year rebellion against English rule, which has guaranteed him a place in the history books and several commemorative statues dotted around Wales, one of which can be seen in the centre of Corwen.
The route should be possible in all but the very worst winter conditions when drifting snow may cause problems on some of the higher sections.
The route starts from the car park in the town of Corwen.
