Trail is currently open
The Freeminer trail offers more of a challenge for experienced riders.
Maintained by the Dean Trail Volunteers in partnership with the Forestry Commission, this challenging and varied singletrack can offer something to even the most demanding of riders, from tricky switchback climbs to rooty drops and hairpin bends.
It is for experienced riders only and is suitable for off-road quality mountain bikes. The trail is currently 4.5 miles / 7km in length but is being developed by the volunteers, so expect some exciting changes in the near future. There is now a totaly natural and unsurfaced optional extension to the trail.
A map of the trail has been produced by 1 South West.
From 12th September tree harvesting will be carried out in the area around the Cycle Centre as part of the Forestry Commissions normal forest management.
We aim to keep disruption to a minimum and keep you informed of closures.
All trails will be open as normal on weekends but there maybe some tree brash or damage to the trails.
Please help us by adhering to all signage and harvesting staff during this period so we can get the trails open as quickly as possible.
Please check the FC website and other local bike social media for updates.
