A traversing trail from the Carding Mill Valley to Batch Valley. Singletrack mostly, some walking uphill may be needed to bring it towards a Blue rating average. Most of this is designated as a Bridleway and appears on the local paper map as mainly Route 15. Can be ridden in both directions, but both would involve steep climbs. Follow the 'RIDE UK' Horseshoe signs, however improbable they seem. At one point this involves a steep climb on narrow Singletrack instead of a level continuation along the fence line. A good access for the 'Jinlye' Trail and for 'Golf Course Climb' Trail or a return from either when used as descents.

Access Info

From the Carding Mill Valley road before getting to the Visitor Centre and Café. In the other direction from Batch Valley cross the little flat concrete bridge onto steep trail to left.
