Trail Community

Mountain biking in Epping Forest has increasingly become a popular activity within the Forest. You can cycle throughout most of the Forest with the exception of areas with historic, ecological and scientific sensitivities and the easy access paths, where prohibition notices are displayed.

Although there are no designated cycle routes within the Forest, there are approximately 80km (50 miles) of horse-rides. About half of these are surfaced with the remainder unsurfaced and marked with white posts. Cyclists are welcome to use these tracks but whilst enjoying your cycle ride please be aware of horses or other members of the public who may be startled by the sudden appearance of cyclists.
