Hopton Woods is the home of mountain biking in Shropshire. Come and test yourself out on the warm-up loop before heading into the wood proper.
All the trails at Hopton are largely unsurfaced so the way they ride changes according to the weather and the season. Please ride within your ability (and that of your bike) and with appropriate safety gear.
Walkers are welcome in this wood. For your safety we recommend you don't walk the bike trails.
Prepare yourself for the ride by warming up on this short route (or use it to extend the distance of the main route). You can ride this loop as a short moderate ride or take the qualifer path to test your skills.
For the novice biker with some off road experience the Hopton Blue starts from the Bedstone Hill car park and offers just over 4km of wide tracks to develop your skills on. The moderate section of the Warm-up Loop is approximately 1km.
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.
There are three downhill trails here for the experienced downhill rider.
