Dyfi Bike Park Summary

A new MTB centre in South Snowdonia built and run by Dan Atherton – a professional racing cyclist specialising in downhill, four cross and enduro-downhill mountain bike racing, and is a former national champion of Great Britain. He began riding BMX at the age of 15 and mountain biking a year later.

Trail Centre Details

A newly opened downhill Bike Park in the Esgair Forest near Machynlleth to rival Antur Stiniog further north.

There are currently four downhill routes of varying difficulty, with difficulty being the operative word here. These are designed by professional MTB riders, and are suitably challenging. There is a red route under construction.

Once you pay for your daily pass, the number of uplifts are unlimited and take around 11 minutes. The runs themselves varying from 5-10 minutes in duration, so you’ll be able to get loads of runs in with a single day pass.

As the trails are highly technical, they recommend that you’re fully kitted out with full face helmets and knee pads. No under 12s are allowed, and children under 16 must be supervised by an adult at all times.
