      Epping Forest is home to the only real MTB trails within London, stretching between Forest Gate in the South and Epping in the North. If you know where to look it contains some of the best singletrack in the South East and London.

      Epic mud in the winter and crazy brambles in the summer but lots of fun if you like it twisty and fast. Its very easy to go riding here, if you live in London, Essex or Hertfordshire. There are trains from London Liverpool Street to Chingford, and the Central Line to Snaresbrook, South Woodford, Loughton or Epping giving easy access to the forest.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
