Good blue that you get out of what you out in. Pedal hard and it is great.

Pretty much worthless. Would be an ok green but so poorly maintained by hapless Forrestry Englang (rocky) it is not suitable for toddlers who might get something out of it. Rest of trails in Leigh Woods have been destroyed by Forrestry England. Not worth visiting if you live in Bristol never mind anywhere else.

The surface is nice at the start and the second half is really fast.

enjoyable but a bit more like a green trail than a blue. Good for total beginners. There are a couple of really nice trails down to the river but they are not listed on Trailforks yet.

Nice and gentle single track with a few sections to challenge yourself if up to it. Rideable in all conditions. A great trail to loosen up on!
