The MinorTaur (blue moderate grade) Biking Trail (2.9 miles, 4.8 kilometres).
The MinorTaur has quickly become the most popular trail at Coed y Brenin. It's a great fun introduction to mountain biking for a wide range of ages and abilities and is unique in that it can
be used by riders with a disability using adaptive mountain bikes.

The trail is built in 3 loops, which get progressively longer, so you can choose the distance you want to cover. There are plenty of fun features, including stone steps, table tops and fantastic
swoopy berms. Remember to treat with caution on your first ride, then session the sections to improve your skills!

Look out for the shiny hoof prints that give you a clue that there's a MinorTaur about!

More information in relation to whether or not this is suitable for you and where you can get training can be found on the Natural Resources Wales website.
