Yer Tiz trail

This blue grade mountain bike trail features berms (banked corners), rollers (bumps), and drops and climbs. Yer Tiz is suitable for beginners who have mastered the basics of off road cycling. For more experience riders, there are opportunities to challenge yourself with optional red grade sections and the Keener Skills loop.

Please ride cautiously, giving way to other woodland users where the trail crosses paths.  Expect to meet other people enjoying the woods, including walkers, dog walkers and children. Helmets must always be worn when riding.

Coaching area

Leigh woods has a purpose built coaching area close to the car park that is suitable for teaching a range of skills for all ages and abilities.
