This trail is by far the best, and most popular means of climbing to the top of the park. A nice, flowing descent too (and an easier option than the other tracks).

Access Info

Part way around the Skating Pond Loop.

      Tree down over trail, nearer the top. Dead beech, about 35cm diameter - a bit more than a silky can handle.

      A mix of dry grippy sections and slippery clay and mud.

      Small tree 150mm fallen over trail just after start. Can’t move. Would cut through with large silky. Don’t have one with me.

       They've done a good job of this climb.
      Totally rideable without an ebike.
