Base Summary: Mynydd Hiraethog Mountain Biking Routes
Mynydd Hiraethog is an area of high moorland between Snowdonia and the Clwydian hills that is reasonably flat once you get up there! Adding to the interest are the reservoirs of Brenig and Alwen, as well as the forestry. For such a man made landscape, the routes are not manufactured and may invovle a bit of map work to find your way around.
