A woodland trail linking Tolcarne and Treslothan. You head down a path between two hedges, keeping your head down to avoid some branches. There is a stream at the bottom to then cross. There there is a generally down hill trail trough the woods alongside the stream. There is a jump part way down, if you fancy it, but also a path to the side. There are some root sections and a few up's and down's. You need a bit of mountain biking skill, but there is nothing too tricky. The bonus is that the woods are really nice too!

Access Info

Need to ride in from Beacon - probably from the Great Flat Lode.

Nice trail with more lines than a Rolling Stones dressing room!

 Looks like you ride through someones front garden to get to this trail, is that right?
I've only ever ridden the small trail on the other side of the bridge at the end of this one.

 You do go down someones drive, but it is part of a public path. You normally need to go on the grass to the right to avoid a car or van, but there is plenty of room and they are used to it.

 Someone has added a few features and jumps, which I all good! Some need a little work, but it has made the run a little more fun. We stopped a few times to look at various things, hence the slow time.

 First ride through this eve, almost Dukes of Hazzard'ed the river by accident!!
Good fun trail through, looks like lots of options.
Will need lots of runs through before I know the lines, esp the one that looks like a drop off but is a 10' deep gorge!
Enjoyed this one, well done to however looks after it, feels like a personal trail.
