Decent flowy trail that forms the last 1km singletrack section of Bedgebury’s red trail. No surprises just a couple of mild jumps. Stays pretty much mud free year round and is easily sessioned by looping back round. Like most of Bedgebury it’s not technical or challenging and is good for giving inexperienced riders an entertaining peek into mountain biking. Runs close to the trees so just look out for clipping a bar.
A good time is 2 mins, with peak speeds up to 30mph if you get it right, so faster riders can get a buzz too

Access Info

It’s officially the last bit, but you pass it at the top of the fire road climb from the start. So you don’t need to do the whole circuit to get to it!
