Bottom’s Beck (9.5km, Blue)
This is a nice short and easy ride that’s suitable for novices. The trail has a good combination of forest road and singletrack as it follows an old railway line. That doesn’t mean it’s straight though – you’ll twist and turn through Park Wood before finishing back in the car park with a big grin on your face.
The 8 (18km, Red)
The 8 is a really fun trail loop that takes in a wide variety of terrain, from dark, twisting woodlands, to wide open moorland. The landmark point of the ride is Whelpstone Crag, and there are great technical rock features to ride around there as well as some stunning views. It’s worth trying the optional black line of Hully Gully too, which is a unique descent with big wallride berms.
Bike Park (0.5km, Orange)
Hope Line and Leap of Faith are twisty DH trails that are under continuous development and maintenance by trail volunteers. Both trails are in the heart of the forest, about 3km from Gisburn Forest Hub.
