Purpose built trail centre opened in November 2013, initially with one blue trail (9km) and one red trail (22km). Nice cafe, friendly atmosphere and enough to keep riders of all levels happy.

The trails are fast and flowy with plenty of drops and berms. In places on the red loop there are features marked as black with chicken runs around the outside for those who prefer to give them a miss, although they're not too bad and probably more like a red.

Nice trail. Not so easy on way up. I thought the descent was a bit long and you had to go for it if you want a bit speed. By the time you get to the bottom your knackered. The trails are smooth and ma... read whole comment...

I had a great morning on these trials doing the red and blue. I would say the time the red can be completed comfortably in 2.5 hrs and 45 mins for blue. The descent on the red was brilliant fast and... read whole comment...

Really nice trails here, good climbs and great descents. The descents flow really nicely and the ascents are mostly quite interesting. It could be argued that the red descent lacks technical difficul... read whole comment...

Starts out from the cafe at the SW corner on the blue and heads E (anti-clockwise) then turns off onto the red after about 3to3.5km. It's all well signposted.

The highlight is the descent from the highest point (at far NE), which can easily be repeated without having to do the whole loop again. It's not very steep or challenging technically but makes the most of all the climbing you've done and has plenty of drops and berms.

It's a trail centre so is all quite smooth and well kept and will probably hold up well (mostly) in the rain.

This is an excellent venue for a family day out. Went and did the whole thing with a pal who had never been to a trail centre before and the smiles were ear to ear. My well behaved dogs was also mad... read whole comment...
