The Long Mynd is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a series of hills with steep gullies locally known as Batches. In fact Minton Batch is regularly featured in MBR and What Mountain Bike magazine as one of the best single track descents in the UK, and its only minutes away from our centre. The centre and trails have been featured in Single Track, MBR and MBUK. Also featured in video edits on Dirt and Wideopens websites.

Pole Bank, the highest point of Long Mynd is 516 metres above sea level and on a good day Snowdon, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons can easily be seen as can the Malvern hills to the south. There are many excellent trails to explore and there are trails to suit everyone and every ability.
