High Point

Starting in Satterthwaite and taking the climb through Breasty Haw into upper great wood. 1st descent through the purples, Devil's gallop, then a big road slog to Esthwaite lodge (public footpath) until the riverbeds down to visitor's centre. Get some ginger cake in you before the 3 witches back to the car.

Great, rocky, tech, fast riding. Not so long that you're blowing your legs to bits, either.
