The Red Trail at Hamsterley Forest is a trail for real adventurers who want to spend the day exploring the further reaches of the forest. The route follows the Blue Trail to the Grove before heading into the wider forest on a mixture of forest road and singletrack.
Superb views await at the top of the forest overlooking Eggleston Moor before returning to the Grove via the Euden Beck. To complete a 'figure of eight' loop, the route retraces a short climb past Descend Bike Park before returning to the start at Bedburn via some exhilarating singletrack sections.
