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.
