Really enjoyed this trail... I cycled a lot as a youngster but haven't really been out much lately. If you're a good enough cyclist but not really done much off road, this trail provides some real fun if you're prepared to take it easy and let faster cyclists pass.
After we'd done the whole trail once we returned to the start and repeated a couple of sections before returning to the visitor centre on the green trail. Second run was great with the extra confidence in the bikes, the surface and ourselves!

My twelve year old daughter and I had a great ride today. She's not technically proficient, so the blue route was a great entry to mountain biking for her.
It's a short run, only 45 minutes with breaks and doubling up on some sections, but great fun.
We will definitely be returning and my daughter will certainly improve and hopefully be ready for The Chase this summer!!

Its a great place for mountain bike begginers to learn their skills with plenty of berms and small jumps. Fast gravel tracks but lacking in trail technicality but still worth visiting. Although this place is crying out for a red route in the near future. It would really put this place on the map. Looking forward to the new red route. Nice cafe which is up to trail centre standards.
