Summary:
Good for starting out, but...

Review:
The first few times I rode at Swinley I had a great time. After spending a couple of months riding at other places, I came back to Swinley and found it boring. There's a handful of good runs, but a lot of the routes feel identical to ride.

There's still some fun to be had in the red routes but not enough reward for the effort you put in.

Summary:
Nice trails some nice DH sections great fun

Review:
Great venue for me as a step up from Bedgebury which is my nearest trail centre. Varied with some great DH sections and a couple of smaller tables enough to keep the likes of me (relatively inexperienced /wrong side if 40) happy. Great friendly atmosphere on the trail with other like minded two wheeled "wanba bees" My only negative is the sign posting fir the red route is poor if you dont know the route ! Big shout to Scot who led me around. Is it the weekend yet!?

Summary:
Decent place for some fast XC, and small amount of Enduro

Review:
Enjoyed my day out here. BUT not as DH/Enduro as I was led to believe, there is a small amount but the 5 or so runs last for max of 1 minute (much quicker the better you are) and they are at the furthest end of the tracks so a bit of a pain to get there.
Facilities were great though and trails were very well maintained.

Excellent Trail!

Review:
Another great trail, it's fairly tough on the red route, has a bit of everything, you will not be disappointed. Also, the parking is very cheap at £2 for 3 or 4 hrs. There is a cafe, bike hire, eating area, and other facilities. Definitely, won't disappoint.
