Trail description

The Family Cycle route covers a 3 mile loop that starts at the Visitors Centre and loops through the forest on the extensive all-weather network. 

Taking approximatley 1 hour to complete at a leisurely pace, the Family Cycle route is ideal for those with small children who would tire on the longer trails or newcomers to cycling just wanting a leisurely quiet hour in the forest.  Picnic benches are dotted around the trail, which provide resting stops or somewhere for a picnic. 

This trail is directly accessible at post 17 from Centre Parcs holiday village. 

Free fold out maps of the cycle routes are available from the Visitor Centre and Cycle shop.

This was my first time here and I was really impressed, the route was quite easy and lovely to ride. There were really easy to follow signs and all the staff were very helpful. Great facilities. Will be trying the blue route next time. Well done!
