Trail description

A great long distance cycle route which takes in many sculptures.  The trail covers both sides of the valley taking in contrasting forest habitats and wonderful views.  Be prepared for the hills though! and includes a couple of miles of public road to ride.

Start at the Visitor Centre car park and follow the orange waymarkers. Please be aware this trail has a section along the public road.

What do other visitors say?

I done this route as a training ride a couple of times now.on the second time from Rusland as its easier to ride the extra 6 miles than drive the narrow road in a van when it's busy.

Last time a couple of weeks back one or two of the markers had been damaged/missing and we got lost before the zipnwire area?

Thanks for getting in touch and sorry to hear you experienced some difficulties on the trail. All our waymarked trails are inspected each month but we will let the ranger team know about the missing markers you came across so they can be repaired.
