place Bodmin, PL30 4AL
The 'Bodmin Beast' trail at Cardinham Woods is a 12km (moderate) blue graded trail suitable for cyclists with a moderate level of off-road experience and keen mountain bikers.
This exciting trail explores the wooded slopes of the Cardinham Valley. You will encounter a number of technical climbs and descents, snaking single track trail and features such as tight bermed corners, small step downs, rollers and table tops. All features can be rolled over at a moderate speed. The trail is exposed to steep unfenced side slopes in places.
There are also two sections of difficult red grade trail, which loop off of the main Bodmin Beast trail. These options will add up to 30 mins to your ride, and are only suitable for proficient mountain bikers. ‘Dialled-In Dave’ is natural, flowing and fast; an ideal introduction to Red grade single track and a great place to develop your trail riding skills. ‘Hell’s Teeth’ presents a tough initial climb, with some very steep sections, but you’ll be rewarded at the top with some narrow, flowing trail featuring numerous technical features and then a very steep bermed final descent.
