Trail Community

The Descent Line Trail is the newest addition to the Stainburn forest trail network. It is a short but action packed single track, DH run.

Starting from the main carpark the trail leads up in to a wooded section, then sends you bombing down a track littered with boulder obstacles and corner berms. A fast descent line which splits off from the red loop, joining up at the bottom of the hill with the black climb.
