Please note the route is OPEN, but FORESTRY WORK is currently being undertaken in the area, managed by banksmen. This route although quite long is not too technical, making it ideal for those riders are fit but prefer the less technical routesl. The route takes you through Clocaenog Forest, famous for holding rounds of the RAC Rally, home of the rare Black Grouse and one of the few remaining strong holds of the Red Squirrel. Llyn Brenig is a vast man made lake and this route allows you to circumnavigate its entire shoreline, with the opportunity for a snack at the visitors centre, before bringing you over the dam wall itself for your return trip through the forest. A Great day ride and not one to be rushed.
