Trail description

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 short, flowing single track loop through the trees returning through the recently clearfelled area with great views of the Washburn Valley.

The construction of this route has been funded by the North Yorkshire Aggregates Grant Scheme.

Maintenance of the trail is done by SingletrAction volunteer group inconjunction with the Forestry Commission

Trail Waymarking: Red arrows on square discs.
