The trail runs from the field often used for parking by Rouge Theatre, near the North Cliffs entrance to Tehidy Woods. It finishes near the top on the Strava run Water Rat Downhill. As the name suggests, you are mainly riding through the trees!

You enter the woods from the grass area and weave right and go through a section of trees on a sweeping path. Things then open up a little and you can pick your line through the trees to pop out onto one of the main paths in the woods. Turn left and after about 20 meters turn right, back into the trees, before you meet the other main path on the left (it is easy to spot). Do not follow the main path here but veer off to the left and slightly up hill (I have tried to mark it with branches). There are a few lumps/bumps and possible jumps here with some roots and a good straight section to get speed up. At the end of the straight there is a sharp right onto a path (around a large tree). Follow the path for a few meters and take a sharp left, weave through this section and finish on one of the main paths at the end.

A lot of fun and a good challenge for how fast you can do it! Enjoy.

 This is a standard trail, some sections with roots (air possible) but nothing in the way of jumps etc. You weave your way through the trees. Good fun and one to set times over.

 Rouge Theatre are set up in the top section of the run currently. The trail is partly blocked as a result. However, you can still get through and if you go in the morning there will be no show on - therefore no issue. Just avoid the area when there is likely to be a performance. I will update when all is clear once more.

 It is now all clear, Rouge have finished. It is running very well in the dry!

 There is a tree down just before you start the second section. You can get past on the right hand side but it is tight!

 Not as wet as some of the other trails, the tree still needs moving.

 The big tree at the start of the second section is clear. The smaller one after it is still there. Another small one is down a little further in, you can ride over it. A little more clearing needed before a real quick run can be done.

 A little tree clearing still needed, but riding well.

 Did a big clear up at the top of the second section and used all the branches to better mark the main line. Running very well now, good to have it back!

 There is a lot of tree felling going on in the second section, as a result there are branches and tree all over the place! I have cleared it again, but take care!

 Got lost on my own trail! The second section is very different too - need to remark the trail!

 Marked out the second section again, I think the tree felling is over now. Will add photos of the first half of the second section.

 Loving this again, getting dialled back in! Still running well despite the very wet conditions - this one never lets me down!

 A little wet in places, but riding well. A lot of tree felling has been done, blocking the trail in the second section, but spent a while clearing it today - now all clear.

 Had to clear a lot of branches after tree felling in the second section. Clear now and running well. A little wet so watch the cornering!

 Running well after the clearing up the other day. Damp in places which slows you down a little, but good fun all the same.

 Running well, Rouge Theatre have now left. Line from the start of the second section is blocked, but you can take a lower line. Will need a little clearing to get the fastest line back.

 Very wet and muddy today, never seen it that bad. Very slow, also some branches down.

 Still a little wet at the top which makes the flowing part not so much fun. A lot of branches etc in the way again, but have not been down there for months. I have cleared it now. Otherwise all good.

 Great fun again! Just a few extra dens built by kids etc, so need to weave around a little more!

 Still need to weave around the dens a little, but running well and quick in the dry conditions.

 Riding really well, but as I was checking to see if my wife was not getting lost - I ended up going the wrong way! That will teach me!

 Running very well, really enjoying weaving through the trees! Just need to remember the sharp right after the long fast straight!

 Hit a tree stump at the very end, never even seen it before! Do not turn left early at the end!
