Stainburn Forest is home to The Warren Boulder Trail is an ongoing project by SingletrAction to create arguably the most technical man made trail in England.

With this in mind SingletrAction have opened up some of our work for you to try out, we have joined our man made sections to some existing natural trails, which give you a short loop from the Car Park. The trail consists of a 4.2km of difficult trail loop, however since this is an on going project please bare in mind that changes will continually be made.

Please be on the look out for trail builders and importantly way markers, even if they fire you up a push up.
