    There are miles of forest trails interspersing the forest which makes them the perfect family riding. Offering a multitude of different routes throughout the forest, with traffic free riding and beautiful views they are a delight for all the family. On the floor is a nice wide trail, laid with gravel. This makes for nice easy riding in the forest. The only small warning for these trails is that being in the Lake District we are hilly and the gradient of our trails can offer a fair challenge to many. Despite this they are the perfect trails for all the family.

    To explore the forest trails you only need a standard mountain bike, and we offer children’s bikes from 20” wheels, tag-a-longs for those youngster’s still learning to ride without stabilisers or who just need that little extra help up the hills, and for younger adventurers (from 12 months old upwards) we offer trailers, perfect for an afternoon nap or a chilled out explore of the forest! (Please note we do recommend an electric bike to tow the trailers as it makes the experience a lot more pleasant pulling the trailer up the hills!)

    We also offer ELECTRIC bike hire for those wishing for a more “chilled out” ride. These amazing bikes flatten out the fells and makes you feel like you are riding in the park. Don’t worry it is not cheating as you still have to pedal!  With it you will be overtaking even the most enthusiastic of cyclists on the uphill’s and we challenge you not to come back with a smile after riding these fantastic bikes.
