Trail Community

Philips Park Mountain Bike Trails have been built through broadleaved woodland around the edge of the park, taking advantage of existing slopes and features. The new construction is a circular route but the trail will operate at least initially as two loops in a figure of eight configuration, using the main drive through the park to return to the trail head. The North Wood loop will operate in an anti-clockwise direction and the South Wood loop in a clockwise direction. Both loops will be accessed from the trail head at the car park opposite the play area.

There is a link from the Philips trail to another (blue grade) 3 km circuit at Waterdale, built in 2010 and managed by the Forestry Commission. A map showing both trails is available via the download box on the right.
