Bikemagic Trail Guide: Coed Llandegla, North Wales

Introducing our new Trail Guide, the ultimate resource for where to ride in the UK. And we start with Coed Llandegla, North Wales.

Destination

Coed Llandegla, North Wales. Not your typical North Wales technical rock-fest, Coed Llandegla, just across the border near Wrexham, genuinely has something for every level and type of mountain biker. Within easy reach of big cities such as Manchester, it’s massively popular but has enough trails to cope with the crowds.

How to get there

From Wrexham, take the A525 signed towards Ruthin. You’ll see a couple of trout fishing lakes on your right before seeing the brown information sign showing the turning to the trail centre on your left.

Sat Nav: LL11 3AA


Facilities

Just about everything bar a Spa and Sauna! As well as toilets, bike shop, bike hire, great cafe with the best bacon butty in Britain and bike washing facilities, there’s an excellent skills area and pump tracks

Trails

One lap of the Red including the Black sections used to leave you feeling a bit hollow but, facing the long dull climb at the start for a second lap, tended to make tea and cake a more likely decision. The trail pixies have been busy though and one lap now really does the business. Fast, jumpy, swoopy, well surfaced and all rollable, it’s great in all weather conditions but expect some testing climbs. The Blue is good fun and there’s a Green too for families.

Other info

Car-park fee is £4.50 and, if snow is forecast, check the One Planet Adventure webcam for conditions as it always seems to dump on Llandegla.

    I’m afraid your satellite picture is pointing at the wrong spot. The One-planet carpark is on the south side of the A525 and further East, off the edge of your photo.

    If you’re coming from Wrexham, it’s a different fishing lake that you pass before the turning. The one you point to is after the turning.

    The new black is ace and the corresponding climbs are just mean. Well worth a trip.

    Hi,

    Couldnt disagree more.
    Been there twice, done it, do not feel a need to do it once again.
    If you are around it is OK, but making special trip from my place – Midlands – is waste of time.
    I’m not a big fan of ironed trails like this. If Wales I much prefer natural stuff that is aplenty around.

    Cheers!
    I.
