Verderers trail

Voted the Best Blue Trail in England by Mountain Biking UK in 2021, the Verderers Trail is an exciting and adventurous blue-graded trail for both intermediate and experienced cyclists on mountain bikes.

The trail includes flowing corners, big berms and rollover features. There is a gentle uphill climb through the forest with some tricky challenges along the way. The final descent, known as the Dragon's Tail, was resurfaced in 2020 giving it a fast, smooth finish that will leave you coming back for more. Further sections have been refurbished in 2021.
