Trail description

A moderate trail for riders with some off-road experience.

This trail is made up of two loops which totals approximately 4km in total.

The wide track makes it suitable for most riders with some off-road experience although it does involve some climbs and descents and a fantastic view.

At the centre point of the trail you have the option to take the short route back if legs are getting tired.

Pearce XC

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.

Downhill Trails

There are three downhill trails here for the experienced downhill rider.

What do other visitors say?

5 Stars 5 Stars

Fantastic trails, well maintained, reasonably challenging reds which are great fun and stretch you a bit. Wish I was fit enough to do a couple of laps. Someone ought to open a little cafe/snack bar. Would do well to foster Hopton as another trail Centre though it'd be a shame to spoil it.... maybe lets keep it quiet! Well done Pearce Cycles. Highly recommended for a bit of XC trail and Downhill in a beautifully managed forest.
