Good Points
The official trail (Scartree) is short, but well armoured for all weathers and has some decent bermed sections to blast through - it's good for beginners and more experienced riders will still get grins out of it if they hammer round. The rest of Wakerley Great Wood has a fair amount of off-piste trails too if you keep your eyes open for them - if you like tight, twisty, wooded singletrack then there's a fair chance you'll enjoy a ride here.

Bad Points
Not much gradient to work with - speed has to come from your legs rather than gravity, and the off-piste trails can be a bit of a lottery in wet weather (the ground is mostly clay-based and turns to slop or thick sticky mud pretty quickly). No real facilities other than a car park (although Fineshades Wood is a 5 minute ride away with a bike shop and cafe).

Running very fast! Just did a few laps night riding and the trail is too fast unless you have 1600lm or more light.

Main trail is still holding up well, some of the off piste is getting very muddy though, worth sticking to the main trail for now.
