The North Face Mountain Bike Trail consists of nine sections of sinuous singletrack trail on the west side of Grizedale Forest. The trail offers adrenelising sections of single track desent with leg burning up hills, contouring through oak woodlands and conifer forest. The challenging trail also gives the mountain biker tricky board walk sections through meadows yet reward the trail rider with outstanding views along the way.

The trail is for experienced mountain bikers and has a RED grade. It is suitable for proficient mountain bikers with good off-road riding skills and fitness. The trail has challenging climbs, tricky descents and technical features such as drop offs and large rocks.

Start from the Visitor Centre and follow the North Face Trail waymarkers.
