The shorter section of the Penmachno Trail enjoys wider views and the complication that it doesn’t actually start at the trailhead! So if you’re looking to complete this on it’s own you’ll need to bike across to the starting point, or include part of the Dolen Machno on your ride.

Remember that you can download the GPX File for the MTB route above and use in your GPS device or on your favourite mapping app. We’ll have a run down of how to use GPX files on your MTB route soon.
Base Summary: Penmachno Trail Centre
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?
