As mountain biking options are currently very limited at Grizedale forest, you might like to consider visiting Whinlatter or Gisburn forests. The Quercus (Blue) and Altura (Red) at Whinlatter are open as normal, whilst at Gisburn most bike trails are open with three short diversions and the Leap of Faith bike park trail is closed.
We really appreciate your patience whilst we continue to deal with the effects from storms.
