BLUE GRADE (Moderate)
6.5KM (4 MILES) 0.75 - 1 HRS
Ashton Court is a very busy multi-user site, and the Nova cycle trail crosses and shares
walking and horse riding routes. Expect the unexpected and respect pedestrians and horse
riders. Warn others of your approach in plenty of time and stop for horses if necessary. A
‘moderate’ Blue grade trail, the route offers a rewarding experience for relative novices and
more experienced riders. The Nova Trail winds around Ashton Court Estate, packing in non
stop flowing enjoyment along the way. The trail has small rock steps, rollers (bumps) and
berms (banked corners). In places the trail splits for a short distance, giving an option of a
more difficult challenge.

Access Info

Entry to Ashton Court via the archway at the top of Bridge Road. Continue along the road, past the gate and up the gravel track on the right. Trail starts at the top of the hill in the woods on the left.

Few puddles along the way, with the most being along the quarry. Running good in general though.
