  • Lots of great trails to choose from for the family. We spent 2 days here exploring. My 3yr old had a go at her 1st green. My 7yr old was flying around the blue and my husband got his fix on the red.

  • Amazing trails. Well kept. All the facilities you could need, cafe showers changing rooms and shop with bike hire available at good rates. Had several really fun days here.

  • Great mountain biking venue. Trails are graded green (easy family cycling), blue (moderate difficulty but with some nice flowing trails - the lower descent down Good Game is an absolute hoot!), red (getting up there technically - spooky wood is a must-visit) and black (for suitably skilled and equipped cyclists only). There is also a free-ride area and a skills loop for practicing on. A well stocked branch of Alpine Bikes is on site which does bike hire. There is also a cafe which, in my opinion, is a little overpriced.
  • Top notch bike park . Amongst some of the best trail riding in the UK. Take on the 28km black if you don't want to walk tomorrow
  • Great selection of trails for all levels and a good cafe.
  • Best trail centre in the boarders! Bike hire, repairs available. Routes for all abilities, from green to black to unmarked
  • Great MTB trails for all levels. Well maintained tracks and good routes for all itineraries.
