Summary:
Great trails, always improving.

Review:
Well I'm a bit biased as I'm the main trail builder...

As of Jan 2019 there are 3 trails(between 1min30sec - 2min30sec avg) with another 2 under development and more being planned of varying difficulty but all with plenty of berms and jumps.
The trails have been developed under Forestry Commission guidelines and with an emphasis on inclusion and progression. Anyone can enjoy riding here, all jumps are rollable and the gap size ranges from 6ft to 40ft+ so it's great for beginners all the way up to gravity defying lunatics, and everything in between. There have been some big changes in recent years with many of the older lines being closed, but a lot of work being put into what remains...quality over quantity.
Nothing rough or particularly steep (save a couple brief technical sections at the bottom). All trails start from the same trail head.

Scratchy McBitey - has the smallest jumps but is the longest trail and rideable most of the year.

Mainline - bigger jumps with a few options depending on ability. This includes a 30ft double a big step-up and a step-down into berm for the more advanced riders.

Sideline - (Currently closed for works but should be reopened for late spring 2019) - Even bigger jumps including a decent sized step-down and....well, you'll have to wait and see....we've been busy!

*Nods Track* - New trail currently under development - Opening Summer 2019


*Cyderline" - New trail currently under development - Opening Summer 2019 (with a whole lotta "nope!!")


******TOP SECRET****** opening summer 2019.....maybe.
