The Poacher Trail at Thetford Forest (Formerly known as the Blue cycle route) is recommended that users are experienced cyclists and have a good level of fitness, but the route length can be reduced by using the short cut. The Poacher Trail is located in Brandon Country Park. This loop can be linked with the High Lodge Shepherd Trail to lengthen the trails and let off some steam.
