Really great trail with optional challenges if you dare to commit to them; descent is fun with technical chutes and corners but a good fitness level is needed to complete the whole thing in one take!

Ok, fun and fast with some nice jumps and berms, typical trail centre red that isn’t anywhere near that difficult though

That's the Forestry England for you! If you're ever in Kent, check Bedgebury and their selection of "red" trails. At least this one is pretty fun
