What do other visitors say?

5 Stars 5 Stars

This is a brilliant little trail with tough climbs and tricky, rooty and very steep descents. Went with a plan of riding the blacks after a warm up loop on the red, but the red was more than enough of a challenge for me, only clearing it fully in the second lap. It's definitely top end of red!

It may sound like a long way to go for a 5 mile loop but it feels a lot longer,and a second lap isn't boring.

If you find follow the dog a stretch, don't bother,but if you like a challenge it's a real treat.
