Forestry Work is about to start in Hopton Woods.

This is a wide scale thinning operation which will take some weeks to complete depending on the weather and ground conditions.

We will need to shut sections of trail as the work progresses and will try to keep these closures as short as it is safe to do so.

There will be a few days when the car park and access road will be closed so we can safely fell the trees around it.

-Believe closure signs,
-Keep away from stacked timber,
-Expect to meet forest machinery and timber wagons,
-Give us time to check trails are safe to re-open,
-Spread the word to avoid wasted journeys,
-Keep an eye our facebook page for the latest updates


This small parking area give access to the moderate Hopton Blue and the Pearce XC trails.

Please park considerately and do not block the several gateways.

Pearce XC

12.6km of flowing descents and lung busting climbs and stunning views which are bound to put a smile on your face. This trail has been built in partnership with Pearce Cycles of Ludlow.

Hopton Blue

For the novice biker with some off road experience the Hopton Blue starts from this car park and offers just over 4km of wide tracks to develop your skills on.
