Warren Boulder Cycle Trail
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 5/5)

Grade of Trail:

  • Severe

Length of trail:

1.9 miles

Trail is currently open


For safety reasons cyclists using the unofficial cleared lines in Norwood Edge please access the forest from Stainburn Moor car park.

A short but challenging route. Narrow single track, rocky trails with varied surfaces passing through remote forest. Some very steep climbs, descents and technical obstacles and north shore sections needing a high level of technical ability.

Experienced, excellent bike handling skills and a high level of fitness required. Part of the route is man made by volunteers from Singletraction, the rest has been built with funding from the North Yorkshire Aggregate Grant Scheme.

Maintenance of the trail is done by SingletrAction volunteer group inconjunction with the Forestry Commission

Trail Waymarking: Black arrows on square discs.

Awesome spot. Black is super technical and a good challenge. Disagree with the northshore being easy in the wet - it is ridable, but super easy to slide/slime off it. Top fun :)
