What are the trails like?
We are a Bike Park, and the trails reflect this, a blue here is more technical than an XC Blue. Our trails are best suited to an All-Mountain Bike but are still fun to ride on other bikes.
There are a variety of runs from Green to Black and suit all abilities. The trails are all surfaced (apart from Bendy-G) and have rocks aplenty! Body armour is always advised. Surfaces will change with the weather, sometimes that means they are dusty and loose other times slippery and wet.
What Trail should I ride first?
Start on Plug and Feathers (green grade) as a warm up and then try out Jymper and Shaft. You will be briefed on arrival by a member of staff at the sign on desk on trail grading and riding etiquette, as well as all our Covid-19 rules and protocols.

Yes you can, but it will be much more fun on a full suspension bike or a hire bike from us.
