      The main riding area is the quarrying and old mine working land comprising of Holywell Common and Halkyn Mountain. The area is criss-crossed with old mine tracks and sheep trails. Access for biking is not confirmed but the area has been used for well over 20 years (documented) for bikes and obviously far longer for horse riding. Try to avoid cutting up the trails by avoiding after heavy rain, sticking to the better drained main tracks. Stay watchful of other users - dog walkers in particular with dogs off the lead.
      This region uses the Uk/Euro style trail grading system.
