Good forest roads for exploring on a mountain bike without having to go off road but with some muddy sections and hill climbs. I did about 6.5km. Great views of the hills above the Bleng and down to the river below that I hadn't seen before. I haven't yet gone further to the next wood at Scalderskew. That looks equally interesting and looks like you could join published mountain bike routes beyond at Monks Bridge and Cold Fell.

What a gem. Massive trees fresh air and friendly people I kept meeting but by far I enjoyed the view point so much watching the sunset with my kids we sat for over 2 hours all so happy. Places like this are for me my heaven on earth. We went on Saturday and Sunday and will go again
