The Marin Trail is one of the 'musts' of North Wales for any serious mountain biker. The trail is a true classic with big climbs, big descents, singletrack - and fabulous views of the Snowdonia mountains along the way. Most of the climbs are on forest roads and tracks and all of the descents are on singletrack The singletack varies from very tight, technical and rocky to open and flowing, from dark forest to exposed ridgelines. The trail is 16 miles (25km) long and climbs to 450m. Start the trail at the Saw Bench car park in the Gwydyr Forest.
