Whancliffe Red XC trail is currently being built which should be about 16 km (10 miles) long, very nearly all on new trail.

The aim is to create a trail that can be ridden by an intermediate rider, but provide enough optional technical features and sections to make even the most skilled riders want to come back for more each time.

In the past year the first kilometre has opened and work is progressing rapidly. Currently 2k of new xc trail is open.

Wharncliffe Woods are just north of Sheffield, the nearest village to the Car park is Grenoside, which has a number of pubs, and a chip shop which I have smelt on the way back from night rides, but never found. If you are coming any distance from North or South, the woods are about 10 minutes from the M1, J36 if you are coming from the North and J35 if you are coming from the South. From the North Follow the A61, signed to Sheffield once of the motorway. Straight over the first roundabout, continuing on the A61, there is a McDonalds on this roundabout as a reference point, or if you feel the need. Carry on this road till you get to a 30mph zone, this is the edge of Grenoside. Take the first right hand turn, opposite the Norfolk Arms pub, and go straight up the hill to the Cross roads in the centre of Grenoside. Turn right Follow this road out of Grenoside and into the woods - the Car park is on the left about a mile from the cross roads. From the South Take the first exit off the Junction roundabout - signed to Chapeltown (A629) Follow this road until you get into Chapeltown. Straight over the first roundabout (second exit) under the railway bridge and straight on at the second roundabout (which is the first exit unless you need snacks from the Tesco's petrol station) Follow this road until you get to the Acorn Pub on the Right, about a mile and a half. Turn Left opposite the pub and follow this road to the top. Turn Left onto the A61. Carry on this road till you get to a 30mph zone, this is the edge of Grenoside. Take the first right hand turn, opposite the Norfolk Arms pub, and go straight up the hill to the Cross roads in the centre of Grenoside. Turn right Follow this road out of Grenoside and into the woods - the Car park is on the left about a mile from the cross roads.
