The Kitchener trail - 13km of pure singletrack

The Kitchener Trail is named after Lord Kitchener the famous General of WW1. The Kitchener Trail flows through the forest linking broadleaf and pine woodland with Heathland and clear fell sites.

The trail is virtually 100% single track, the only time your wheels will hit forest road is when you cross one to hit the next section.

What we may lack in elevation, we try to keep you flowing with berms and rollers with a nice mix of rocks and roots that give the trail its red grading. At 13km long, it is fast and a challenge to ride at differing times of the year and is a great introduction to riding single track for riders wanting to progress.
