Antur Stiniog

Antur Stiniog

Situated in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, Antur Stiniog is a dedicated downhill centre with seven trails to choose from, graded from blue to double black. It’s a formidable location opposite a huge slate quarry, so expect lots of rock slabs on the open hillside. The newest trail is the black graded Bendy-G, packed full of switchbacking berms. You can get in up to 20 runs a day on the uplift service, so the only thing stopping you will be your energy levels!

The trails:

Jympar (1.8km, Blue)

Smooth and fast, with sweeping turns and flowy singletrack.

Drafft (1.8km, Red)

A great introduction to DH. All the features are rollable, but it rapidly gets hard if ridden fast.

Scrybadyb (600m, Red)

This trail is an extremely jump-packed option that leads into Wild Cart.

Wild Cart (1.7km, Red)

A super-steep roll-in is followed by a seemingly endless series of berms and jumps.

Black Powder (1.6km, Black)

Shares its top 50m with Y Du before a series of berms sends you down the other side of the hill. There are steep banks and tight turns, along with fun sections that are flat-out fast.

Y Du (1.4km, Black)

Antur Stiniog call this a ‘premier DH run’. It’s fast and flowy at the top, becoming steeper and rougher over the big rock slabs nearer the bottom of the track.

Bendy-G (1.2km, Black)

An unsurfaced, natural, black-graded trail that tests riders’ abilities to the full. Beware – it’s unpredictable when wet!
