Trail description

The Revelation trail is not for the faint hearted, shaky legged, or the novice.  People love and hate Eastridge for exactly the same reasons but if you like smooth surfaced trails Eastridge is not for you. 

What to Expect

Rocks, roots, mud, gurning climbs and fast, tight, steep descents. 

Devised by the Eastridge Trail Partnership, a group of local riders, this trail has been a long time in development so thanks for all the hard work. If you would like to get involved contact them here

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

What do other visitors say?

4 Stars 4 Stars

Very enjoyable ride with punishing climbs but some very exciting descents to make up for it . I personally thought that one or two of the berms could be built up a little for added safety built then I'm no pro ! I would also like the red signage ( with mountain bike picture) to continue through the little road & stream stage so that those of us taking our first outing can be sure that we are going the right way! Also must be pretty tough going as it seemed further than 5 miles !! It's just as knackering as Hoptons red trail which is double the distance !
