Biking On The Lon Las Ogwen
The Ogwen Trail is the first section of the National Cycle Network’s route 82 that runs from Bangor in North Wales and enters the Snowdonia National Park at Bethesda.
It mainly follows the route of the old railway line that brought slate down the valley from the Bethesda slate quarry to the coast, where it was shipped around the world. The route is well sign posted with blue National Cycle Route signs.
The distance from Bangor to Idwal Cottage is 18km (11 miles) making it a great day trip. Bethesda is situated at the mid point of the route between Bangor to Idwal Cottage.
