This fantastic blue grade route is 7.5km long with a shorter 3.5 km option. It is a gem waiting to be discovered, expect flowing single track with gentle berms, rolling jumps, wide gradual climbs with technical features for the adventurous riders.
The trail starts down hill with sweeping intricate bends requiring hardly any peddling, then climbs up and bends and twists its way until riders came face to face with the Big Whinlatter Bike Trail Wall, a double banked bend within the forest. After climbing up through oak woodland the trail crosses a bridge and into the darker conifer forest. The trail finishes with the hollow sound of a raised board walk over a bog and through a mystical forest of towering conifers.
The Quercus Trail is named after the Latin for Oak (Quercus Petraea) because the furthest loop of the trail runs through the Masmill Oak Woodland.
