Description

Bit of road to warm up on as you climb out of Llandrillo which gets steeper and then take you through a gate and onto a dirt track. The climbing continues until you hit the B4391, make sure you stop and mountain bike map llandrillotake in the view across Bala and Snowdonia it’s pretty impressive.

Hang a left on the road and continue to climb, you drop down a bit but then climb back up again. Bit annoying but almost over as you reach the brow. Hang a left onto the rocky path and climb a little bit more then it’s time to go down.

This is it, this is why you just climbed for what seems like forever. This descents gets better and better; rocky to begin with and then fast and fluid to finish with a river crossing. Simply brilliant.

Once done it’s a simple cruise on the road back to Llandrillo.
