A free to use, 1.4km blue grade loop, suitable for beginners and those with a bit more experience.
Located in the woods to the north of the disused railway line, it can be found by following Warren Lane (our main drive) up past the Hall and Visitor Centre for 200 metres until you cross the railway bridge. The start can be found on your right hand side.
Please be aware that although this is suitable for beginners, you must wear a helmet and suitable clothing, ride in pairs/groups, have access to a mobile phone in case of emergencies, avoid using when dark and have a bike in good working condition.
