Trail description

With over 45 miles of unmarked singletrack to ride, Sherwood Pines provides an almost unlimited supply of technical offroad trails for the more advanced cyclist.

The chosen venue for multiple National Points Series races proves the pedigree of the existing Sherwood trails as one of the best in the country.

What do other visitors say?


I was wondering how much it costs to use the bike trails? Do we have to report to the office, or need a map?

It costs nothing if you cycle in. There is a parking charge if you come by car. The maps are downloadable from the Sherwood Pines main page.
