The Viking Trail at Tunstall Forest is red graded due to its width rather than its severity. Some sections are still technical, so care should be taken. The trail is mostly fast, narrow and flowing singletrack running through the trees, with berms and some short climbs. Pits with steep entries may be found alongside the waymarked route. A shortcut is available in order to reduce the length of the trail if needed.
The origins of the Viking Trail are a legacy of the motorcycle enduro events held in the forest over past decades. These trails have been extended and enhanced by the Tunstall and Rendlesham Off-road Group (TROG). There is an on-going programme of maintenance which includes hidden drainage and the building of technical features for more advanced riders, the aim being to retain what is the ‘essence of Tunstall’, with a natural feel to the trails and minimum use of imported material.
