The Croft Mountain Bike Trail located in Croft Country Park, is a 5km long trail with Red & Blue graded options which is open all year & maintained by the MB Swindon club.
The waymarked trails at Croft Country Park offer both a family/beginner off-road trail (Blue), and a more technical trail (Red) with features for the more experienced cyclist or those wishing to improve their skills. Ride them several times for a more intense workout.
Open all year round and free to use, the trails are easily accessible. They are within a mile of Swindon centre and train station plus there’s free car parking at the start. There are even a few picnic tables should you wish to stay for a while.
Whilst built on land provided by Swindon Borough Council, the trail is managed by the MB Swindon club and has been built entirely by volunteers and is entirely funded by donations.
The Croft Trail is off the small roundabout in Pipers Way (B4006) – opposite Nationwide’s HQ building (SN3 1TX). As you enter the site there is a mini roundabout, turn right for the public car-park (please note that parking duration is restricted at certain times, longer term parking can sometimes be found by turning left at the mini roundabout instead). As you turn into the car park note the ramp & wooden bollards to your left – the start of the trail can be found by going up this ramp and following the signs, heading straight across the main path.
Please note: Distance is calculated as air distance or "as the crow flies" the most direct route between two points, so the distance by road maybe slightly longer.
