Mountain Bike Trails

We are lucky enough here at Lake Vyrnwy Hotel to be situated in the heart of the Berwyn Mountains. Although there are no formal mountain bike trails at Lake Vyrnwy, there are miles upon miles of gravel roads and bridleways in the forests and up on the moorlands that surround Lake Vyrnwy. 

One such route, which you can start here at the hotel, takes in some of the best bridleways and lanes in the area before finishing with a long flowing decent back down to the hotel.

A guide for this route can be found here
