There are many places to ride (both on horseback and on a bike) in Wrexham County Borough Council; we have an extensive network of ‘Green lanes’ in the south of the County with two circular off-road routes. In the north there are three quiet on-road routes and one mixed off-road route.

In addition, Wrexham County Borough Council allows permissive access at Minera Lead MinesBonc-yr-Hafod and Moss Valley Country Parks.

All our riding routes were designed so that if you wish to do so, you could take in a combination of routes with only a short amount of time riding on the road between them.
