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

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
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.

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.
