Downhill Mountain Biking and Freeride Trails

We have 14 trails that range from green grade to black grade and have had international acclaim from Mtb press and riders alike. All trails are accessed by our uplift service (we are an uplift facility only) which is regarded as the best uplift service in the UK.

Please note that during the Covid-19 Pandemic we are only currently open Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday with the Cafe open Friday/Saturday/Sunday.


As many of you will have heard Welsh Covid-19 restrictions have been increasing recently and now 4 areas in South Wales have local lockdown restrictions in place.
The County of Gwynedd where we are located is not under any restrictions but if you are travelling from any of the 4 lockdown area in South Wales please don’t and contact us to rearrange your booking for another time or discuss options.
There are no travel restrictions in place from England so we are open as normal.
We're here to make sure everyone has a great time but please don't forget, when on site everyone will need to follow these rules :
➡️ Wear a face mask on the uplift and inside the visitor centre.
➡️ Please use the hand sanitiser provided to wash your hands as you enter the building.
➡️ Follow social distancing guidelines, particularly when queuing to sign in and use the uplift.
➡️ Complete your Participation statement form before arriving if you are a ‘plus 1’ rider.
➡️ Load the minibus from rear to front, exit from front to rear and avoid touching any contact points and follow the Uplift Coordinators instructions at all times.
➡️ Ride within your limits and enjoy your visit!


Pre-book Full Day Uplift

To fully experience the Uplift Service at its best we highly recommend booking a full day ticket. The uplift service will do up to 20 runs a day. We recommend arriving as early as possible to get the most out of your day and spend your time at Antur 'Stiniog doing what you came to do ride, not push! The first uplift starts at 9.30am and runs until 4.15pm breaking for half an hour at 1pm for lunch.

Reviewed 11 September 2015

Took my two sons, one 14, one 12, and we had an excellent time. After the initial fear of ascending the hill in a mini-bus with guys wearing considerably more armour, we realised they were tackling some considerably more gnarly descents than us. We stuck to the blues (like a red level on normal bike park trails), but that was because we were first timers at pure downhill and our bikes were two basic hardtails, one XC full suspension. Despite this we had an excellent time and were sad to leave. My older son had a crash, but the guys were great at helping reassure him and he was soon back on the trails. Highly recommended for people/families with older kids just getting into downhill. We stayed at some stunning accommodation just outside Llan Ffestiniog, very pretty, and only 5-10 minutes to Antur Stiniog (from Llan Ffestiniog is just 15-20 minutes to other great mtg parks such as Coed y Brenin, Penmachno and Gwydyr). We'll be back. Be careful though, you'll be addicted to the rush!

Repeat visit for gravity adventure

"I have had a few visits to this wonderful place. It is the best mtb uplift center around, it's varied skill level trails suitcase riders with good quality bikes. Don't expect a glass smooth trails this is an uplift center for dh/enduro bikes. If you have one of these however prepare for getting quickest uplift I've used, super fast trails, a national class black graded dh track and a fantastic cafe and facilities. Oh and the staff are brilliant too, the older guy behind the desk is very good with the deep heat if you fall off, as I did ;-)"

"Having never done downhill mountain biking before this was obviously something that we were apprehensive of doing. All keen cyclists however novices at downhill mountain biking!

The guys at Antur Stiniog were amazing, helpful and so very friendly. The bikes we hired were brilliant and easy to manoeuvre, together with helmets. We took our own knee and elbow pads but they let us borrow their more heavy duty kit also.

The weather was extremely cold for the Easter holidays, but the tracks were awesome! We booked a half day lift and managed 4 descents. It was exhilarating! Hard work, so be prepared but stunning views and a great way to spend such a special day!

Thank you Antur Stiniog!! A Welsh Gem!! Xxxx"
