Maid Marion family cycle route at Sherwood Pines

Family cycling route - circular, child-friendly trail

The Maid Marion Family Cycle route is a four-mile circular route that starts close to Sherwood Pines Cycles and loops through the forest on the extensive all-weather network. 

Taking just over one hour to complete at a leisurely pace, the Family Cycle route is ideal for those with small children who would tire on the longer trails or newcomers to cycling just wanting a leisurely quiet hour in the forest.  Picnic benches are dotted around the trail, providing the perfect resting stops or somewhere to enjoy a picnic. There are also "opt-in" sections of the intermediate blue trail where you can test your skills along the way.
