Family cycle trail - circular, family friendly route

If you are looking for a safe, off-road and family friendly cycle route then come to Fineshade Woods. The easiest of our routes is five miles which starts and finishes at the top of the main car park, close to the visitor centre.

If you follow the green cycle waymarkers, you will find yourself cycling through a large part of our woodlands. There are some gentle-to-moderate hilly sections which are easy to take at your own pace.

If you are feeling a little more adventurous, have a go at the slightly more challenging 'Blue' graded taster sections that run alongside the route. There are seven sections in all and they are a great way for all the family to improve skills and have some off-roading fun.
