Start your cycling adventure at Hopton Wood!

Hopton Woods is the home of mountain biking in Shropshire. Come and test yourself out on the warm-up loop before heading into the wood on our harder trails.

All the trails at Hopton are largely unsurfaced, so the way they ride changes according to the weather and the season. Please ride within your ability (and that of your bike) and with appropriate safety gear.
