Guisborough Forest currently only has one officially maintained mountain bike trail, the 7.5km Guisborough Forest Blue Route.

The blue trail is entirely on forest roads with stunning views through the surrounding valleys and out to sea.

There are however a number of unsanctioned trails in the forest, including parts of the old black route which has had some work to regrade it to a Forestry Commission "Red" graded trail. However, currently, there are no plans to open any more official trails or routes.

Still good though, even better if you can latch onto someone who knows there way around. Tons of bridleways, with longer loops you can do round Roseberry Topping and Great Ayton quarry. Lots of secret tracks as well, keep your eyes peeled and go exploring!
