Penmachno Trail Centre Summary

Penmachno is run by the voluntary Menter Bro Machno who maintain the waymarked trails. Riders are asked to ‘pay back their dirt’ by donating £2 per ride, or ideally more. What other sport or entertainment can you enjoy for the paltry sum of £2? 

Facilities:

There’s a car park, but nothing on the route. The nearest village is Penmachno, where you’ll find the Eagles Penmachno which also has a bike friendly bunkhouse.

Bike hire and repair can be found at Beics Betws in Betws-y-coed who also provide hire bike drop off services at the Penmachno trail head.
