Excellent Routes Green/Blue/Red & Black Graded also shop and cafe
I've been going here for a while now, Very good routes, I normally stick to the Red or Black depending on how I'm feeling but there is an easier Blue route and a family Green route if you want to take the kids. Excellent facilities from One Planet Adventure, there a shop and cafe. Go for the carrot cake it's pretty damn good!
Nearly forgot there is also a very good pump track and free ride park!

Left here feeling short changed.
Good Parts: Big Car Park, Skills areas and the Black parts are ok if a little short, seems well maintained.
Bad Parts: £4.50 for parking!!!(Everywhere is cashing in on parking charges now it would seem, initially brought in to help maintain car parks, just appear to be getting greedy). The Trail in a nut shell is boring. The start is a 2-3 mile ride on a open gravel flat road and can hardly be classed as part of the trail. The layout and flow is appalling, the designers seem to make you go down hill for no apparent reason(Not fun and no technical descents), then you have to go back up hill feeling 'What was the point of that'. Also, the Cafe seemed a little over priced, can't comment on the food quality, due to the kithcen shutting at 4pm???
Not sure why the hype with this place, felt far to Commercialised and the ride was not worth the trip. Save your energy and go do the MBR trail over NW Wales.

I was there all weekend and so much fun, The red trail is pretty tough at times but there are some really awsome bits with high speed and turns. The blue trail, freeride and skills section were also really good plus there is a sick shop there. I would definitely recommend to any one and will be going again.

Love the degs
This is my local ride and I love it. There is plenty of options with all the new stuff and best of all in the summer we can ride up to add the extra miles. There is even the option of cutting out of degs near the top to go round the mast's and coming back in through the duck boards. Once you know the tracks and the fire roads you can mix it up so your not riding the same track week in week out. There a lots of super fast sections and even the blue trail can enjoyable. Those final climbs on the new red section which links back to the centre can leave you blowing the only problem with this is there are to many pushing. Its all worth it for he final single track back to the centre. If you want a tech fest's then i don't think degs is for you but if you love flowing downhill sections the this is the place to visit.

just when you think ita all over....
first climb is a drag but at least it gets you warmed up for the start of the downhill which i do enjoy, nice and sweeping, pretty easy but....
the last section of the new red drags you up on a horible horible climb, at least 80% of riders were off the bike and pushing up last weekend.
rode the old trail many time but just don't see that the new section improves the experience
have always gone 50/50 between gisburn and llandegla being half way between the two but will definitly now be more 90/10!!
