A 16km cycle path that weaves its way out of Bangor and into the dramatic Ogwen valley in Snowdonia. The journey starts through gentle woodland on a dedicated cycle path before taking you through the dramatic slate quarries of Bethesda.
After this a breathtaking panorama of the Ogwen valley is yours to enjoy. You follow a small, tarmac trail with little traffic. Finally get ready for a short but very steep climb to finish the trip. (You could walk it if you wanted. It's short, but steep.)
At the end of your journey you'll find the Idwal cottage youth hostel which is perfect for an overnight stay. There is also the Cwm Idwal nature reserve for a beautiful walk or a wild swim!
