Introduction

Gisburn Forest Offers two fantastic new mountain bike trails. The "8" is an 18km red grade trail with the unique Hully Gully & Bottoms Beck is a free flowing blue graded mix of surfaces that will make your grin. Trails start from Cocklet Hill Car Park. Red Grade Trail (Difficult 18 km) Highlights include the volunteer built trail of Home Baked, gnarly rocks of Whelpstone Crag and the roller coaster ride down Hully Gully - as close as you can get to dancing on a bike. Follow the red arrows on the timber posts. Look out for any warning markers. Along this route are optional Black Grade lines and features. These are marked with a skull. Blue Grade - (Moderate 9.5km) A short trail that is suitable for novices & younger riders. Down passed St James Chapel and over the causeway leads to a bumpy ride along Eggberry Road. A mellow ride by Bottoms Beck follows an old railway line. Later, you can twist & turn through Park Wood, then finish with a grin on a sweeping descent. Follow the blue arrows on the timber posts. Look out for any warning markers.
