Attraction Information

Set within Snowdonia National Park, Coed y Brenin Forest Park is one of Forestry Commission Wales' Premier recreation sites. If you fancy trying some exciting outdoor activities, Coed y Brenin Forest Park has everything from challenging orienteering routes and geocaching to world-class mountain biking trails.

Alternatively if you need to unwind you can take one of the waymarked walks. Try either a gentle, all ability trail down to the river with the chance of seeing an elusive otter or go over the hill to the next valley to see the beautiful waterfalls and abandoned gold mine. Stop and have your lunch at one of the numerous picnic sites and enjoy the tranquillity of the River Eden or dramatic views of Cadair Idris.

Coed y Brenin made its name as Britain's first purpose-built mountain bike centre. If you haven't brought your bike with you it's not a problem as there is a bike hire facility on site with an extensive range of bikes though it is advisable to book in advance.

There is also a visitor centre with local displays.
