"The Beast’s best mate misses out the extra loop back at the start, but still fits in all the best bits from Big Doug onwards. A stunning day route with everything from super techy rock sections and ripping descents to stunning mountain views."

Trail Reviews:
"Totally amazing. Best trails me and my mate Gaz have ever ridden. Climbs are well worth the descents, fast, flowing, rocky, scary, fast, varied.

They cover everything. Views are breathtaking, cake and coffee half way round trail. I rode a hard tail and was hanging on for dear life at times but loved every second!!!!! Can't wait to come back. It's got to be the best trail here as covers the descents on the beast trail just misses out few climbs. Plenty of Jaffa cakes and mars bars eaten and knackered bodies but the biggest grin we have had on our faces from trail riding ever!!! AWESOME was screamed several times whilst descending down trails!"

"Easily one of the best places I have ridden in the UK. The start of the Red/Black routes, over rocks and streams and then into the smooth and super-fast singletrack, is fantastic. There are some tough climbs in the middle, but worth it for the reward more crazy singletrack decents toward the finish. A lot of work has clearly gone into the trail."
