Norwood Edge Car Park
(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

We can now confirm that the whole site, including all waymarked trails and car park, will be closed from early October 2017 for approximately three months.

Our operations will take place Monday to Friday but the site will remain closed on weekends – the trails will be unsafe and not suitable for use.

For your own safety, public access is not allowed until work is finished and we re-open the site. We will keep you up to date with progress.

Stainburn Moor car park is still available to use

For safety reasons cyclists using the unofficial cleared lines in Norwood Edge please access the forest from Stainburn Moor car park.

A mixed conifer woodland close to Harrogate and Otley.

Norwood Edge car park is on the side of the B6451.

The woodland has red and black cycle trails which are maintained by SingletrAction volunteer group inconjunction with the Forestry Commission.
