clwyds mountain bike routes map

The Clwyds (Clywdian Range) are a compact area of hills in North Wales. Lying to the west of Chester they are only about an hours drive from Manchester and Liverpool, 1h 20 from Stoke and 20 mins from Llandegla Trail Centre.

What to expect: hilly mountain biking on trails that are not too technical but are great fun.

Trails: There are forest tracks, peaty & grassy singletrack, wide grass tracks, farm tracks. Plenty of tough climbs and swooshing descents.

The map is A4 in size and printed on both sides. On one side is the mountain bike map and on the second side are the text descriptions of the suggested routes.

All the off roads in the area are shown and includes surface descriptions, technical gradings, indicatoes for how tough the hill climbs are, spot heights along the trails and useful features such as gates, pubs and cafes.

The Mountain Bike Routes

Use the the map to make up your own mountain bike routes or follow the route suggestions.

Cilcain Blast 7.5 km / 4.5 miles

A short route that offers a good introduction to mountain biking. A long steady climb and then downhills along singletrack (tricky in places) and onto a wide track back to the lanes around Cilcain.

Archibald's Treat 21 km / 13 miles

A hilly route with good mixture of riding through woods and out on the moors. Great views - even in the woods there are good vantage points.

Clwyd Challenge 38 km / 24 miles

If you are fit and up for a few hours of classic cross country mountain biking then you should find this route a pure joy. Tough climbs - rideable if you are feeling strong but many where you may be on the brink, downhills that are not highly technical but are big fun and every changing trails and scenery.

Note: As the maps shows all the trails and road network it is also easy to make up your own route variations!
