Base Summary: Coed-y-brenin – Snowdonia
Coed y Brenin was the UK’s first purpose built trail centre, and following a revamp in 2013 remains one of the best in the country. With trails ranging from the Black – Beast, to easier Blue routes such as MinorTaur and family friendly green Yr Afon, there’s something for all abilities. You can also head off on the many miles of forestry tracks, which are as easy as it gets.
