This hill-top woodland has stunning views across the surrounding countryside and some great, raw mountain bike trails for those who likes roots rocks and a little bit of mud.

The trails in this wood are built in partnership with the Eastridge Trail Partnership to internationally recognised standards.  If you want to dig trails get in touch with them on their Facebook Page  as unauthorised jumps and features will have to be removed.

The Revelation Trail - rated at the top end of the 'difficult' (red) range.

Downhill Trails - Student Champs and '98 DH rated 'severe' (black).

11/6/16 first time in Eastridge for Des Pugh and myself. Great trails ,good grip considering it was wet on the ground. Found the up hills tough , but big rewards with the fast technical descents. Plenty of rooty and rocky bits to keep you switched on. I would not advise a beginner to go there first , even though it is only a 5-6 mile loop it feels a lot more. possibly one of the best trails I ridden, beats the commercialised ones every time.

14 Feb 2016. Hi,all, just wanted to let you know that there is forestry work going on in the forest, and despite what it says on these pages, the trails are not open..well, you can do about a third of the red route, but the student DH track is fenced off, and the top half of the 98 champs track has pretty much disappeared under a load of skidder tracks..wouldn't want anyone else to waste their time driving here..much better going to Hopton or Bucknell at the mo..

Loved it! did it today 18th July. Seemed easy enough to follow to me dont think I went off route. The bits that I guess were most extreme seem to be marked as Black now due to erosion and a diversion given for one of them, I think son and daughter cliff has diversion if required.

Anyway I am no pro bought a second hand FS a couple of months back before that been riding a cheap HT and done Hopton few times and Forest of Dean once. Anyway I did the lot including black parts and yer it was tricky and steep in parts but not loads worse than Hopton, I was expecting it to drag as everyone was saying how long it felt but I thought it seemed a bit shorter than Hopton which it is. I did find the start particularly hard and was about to die but after that soon got in swing of things.

Keep up the good work.
