Wharncliffe Woods steep terrain creates an ideal venue for both mountain biking and strenuous walking, without going to the Peak District.
Wharncliffe has a rich post industrial history with many quarry workings hidden within the woods. Amongst the trees numerous streams meander down the hillside.
There are two walking trails in the wood, marked yellow and red. These are over rough terrain and can be wet under foot. The woodland contains some very challenging terrain both to walk and ride upon.
Please ensure if you are riding off road that you match the terrain to experience and equipment you have.
