Our new ‘Through the Forest’ singletrack route is recommended for cyclists with some basic off-road riding skills and is not suitable for trailers or tag-a-longs. The trail offers an exciting challenge for everyone; the narrow track winds its way through the pine Forest and the technical bends and tight turns mean that the faster you go, the greater the challenge. The trail is edged by rocks and is waymarked with rectangular posts with blue arrows.

      Last section at the end was closed due to maintenance. But this rest of the trail is in excellent condition.

      One section (4 I think) closed with diversion in place via the Somerly. Otherwise all good.

      Part of the final section closed off with diversions in place. Mainly dry with a little bit of light clayey slop in places.

       This isn’t technical in the slightest. Pleasant enough for getting the heart rate up though, so long as you pedal hard.

       This was my 5 year old daughters first taste of single track and she loved, especially the berm and boardwalks. The trail was on top condition too.
