Trail description

(Formerly known as the Black cycle route)

The Lime Burner Trail is for experienced riders only. This trail provides the chance to hone your riding skills with crests and dips, bomb holes and single track. 'The Beast' towards the end of the trail is a fantastic roller coaster ride of ups, downs and tight corners, perfect if you are looking for an adrenaline rush. 

High levels of skill, experience and off-road knowledge with a high level of endurance fitness is required. This route is NOT suitable for riders under sixteen years old. 

Download our z fold cycling guide map (PDF) . Maps are available to purchase from the High Lodge Information Point and the cost is £1.

Please be aware that the route of the Lime Burner trail on the new cycle map  contains some sections of trail that are yet to be built, so please check the latest cycle diversion map (available from the Information Point) before setting out.

Did the Lime Burner trail Easter weekend - it was excellent. Great for cardio and resistance training, whilst having a lot of fun! Well maintained forest. I dont mind paying the car parking as it all goes towards the upkeep of the forest one way or another.
