The timber trail is one of the blue trails in Lanhydrock Woods, it is mostly downhill, but does have two short uphill sections which help to break it up a little. The tail starts near the start of the Saw Pit and Heart Trails and is well sign posted (as all are). You initially go through a narrow section with bushes on either side, then the trail opens up around the first berm into a more open wooded area which makes up the first section of the trail. There are two further berms before a large table top, you really need to hit this hard to achieve air, but can be avoided by staying left. Another berm follows this (possible to get air from the end of this), you then go around another right hand berm before a short climb up to the fire road.

You then have a fast section down the side of the fire road which is a little rutty! Watch out at the end as there are a few ‘speed bumps’ before you drop down into the next wooded section. The speed bumps really work to slow you for this!

As you drop into the next wooded section there are two switch back berms, the second is followed by two drop offs/step downs – these can be avoided by going staying left. Then another couple of berms, there is also a step up jump here (which is roll able), but again can be avoided by staying left. There are also a couple of little jumps over some of the bends in here, made by riders. You then have a short rather sharp climb.

The final section involves a few more switch back berms, a very steep and fast section (just let it go and enjoy!), then a run out to the fire road which takes you back to the top. All in all, there is plenty going on to keep you working and thinking. It is a lot of fun which will give you a grin and the need to hit it harder and faster the next time! Enjoy.

       Running well, lots of fun to be had. Really enjoyed this trail today, my first go - but will certainly be back for more.

       Wet with plenty of puddles, but still managed a PB and dialled in a few more sections.

       Enjoyed being back here again. Really enjoy this trail. Riding well now that it is drier. Would like to ride it dry and when not frozen!

       Only rode the top section with my 7 year old son - he had a little trouble with the table top, but had loads of fun.
