Welcome

MTBtrails.info is a FREE resource for mountain-bikers in the UK to share details about all kinds of mountain bike trails. The idea is that this site provides a rich framework for storing, organising, and displaying trail information, and that users provide an ongoing source of information about the trails they ride. Think of it like Wikipedia for mountain bike trails :-)

The more everyone contributes, the more informative the whole site will become. So if you find the site useful, please consider making a contribution. How about:-

  • Adding a comment or rating for a trail you just rode
  • Changing or updating the details stored against a trail
  • Uploading some pictures, video, or GPS files
  • Or, creating an entirely new trail from scratch

Trail Information


The ‘Trails’ section starts out by showing a map of all the Venues stored in the system. From there you can drill down into each to get at a wealth of detailed information for each of the trails (including downloadable GPS data for every trail).


Add your trails


Know a local trail you want to share? Know an alternative route for a trail already in the system? Why not go ahead and use the 'Route Editor' button below to draw out the route right here in your browser. Or if you have already got your own mapping software or a GPS gadget and you would like to upload a route file, the 'Upload' button below will allow you to upload files in many common formats.

            

What kind of trails are here?


Pretty much every possible kind of mountain bike trails are recorded on the site, including:-
  • Trail Centres - With lots of onsite facilities, Shop, cafe, toilets, etc. and multiple 'built' trails.
  • MTB Developments - Where money has been spent on purpose built MTB trails. Typically will be based from a Forestry Commission carpark or similar. But they are not quite a fully fledged trail-centre with all the facilities.
  • Natural trails - Trails that have just evolved through use or have had minimal levels of work done on them. Offten makes use of multi-use paths and tracks also used by walkers and horse riders etc.
  • Epic Trails - These tend to be longer trails out into the hills. Can be quite remote and offten involve biger climbs. These trails usually follow hill walking tracks and paths.

The only thing you won't find details of on this site is routes which are entirely on tarmaced public roads. Sorry, we don't do roads... we are mountain bikers ;-)
