Trail Community

Leith Hill is the highest point in the south east and managed by the National Trust. It is very popular with mountain bikers which offers one official trail and plenty of off-piste sections for more experienced riders who like to explore.

The Summer Lightning Mountain Bike Trail is the only official trail on Leith Hill. The marked trail utilising 9km of the hillside is a circular red graded trail, the first phase of a planned network of trails linking the Surrey Hills.

Various loops can be achieved between the Surrey Hills but away from the official trail the signage is non existent, so the route map or local knowledge works best here.

There are few unofficial freeride and downhill trails are also on the hill with a couple of drops and trails can be sampled on the push back up to the tower, and are on the right close to Coldharbour village.

We suggest using the 'Landslip' car park which is located just south of the village Coldharbour on Abinger road. At the highest end of the carpark, pick up the footpath. This will lead you right to Leith Hill tower where the trails start.
