Went there a few weeks ago.bmx track is always good fun. Worn out though and needs major re-haul.Over the last few weeks we've discovered various routes and sections within the area. There is a few small drops near a still used tank training slope. Also a hidden downhill course approx 20 mins from the bmx track which is found from the main viewpoint. Look left towards another hill. All in all a good days ride.

There are loads of other trails here it just depends how much energy you've got. My route takes about 2hrs but you rides there for 4hrs without repeating the same trail twice. Really good on a nice sunny day

Starting from the car park on on the left hand side of the Tweseldown Road heading towards Church Crookham, follow the sandy track at the road end of the car park past a small hut and up the tarmac hill, follow this round to the right where it becomes a fire road and continue all the way to top of Hungry Hill. Loop round to the right and head for the edge of the plateau. Look at the nice views while you get your breath back. Follow the track to the left along the edge of the plateau keeping the flying saucer looking thing on your right. When you get to the edge of the small pine wood turn right down a fast lumpy track after about 150 yds go over a crossroads bearing left slightly and continue to the bottom where the track opens out on a grassy area with a couple of lakes. Cross over between the lakes and turn right and ride along the back of the big lake for about 50 yds then bear left up into the woods over the top of the hill and right down onto a fire road follow this down until you get to a hair-pin left. Follow this up to another grassy bit and takes the narrow path across to the other side where you rejoin the fire-road. Turn left and follow it up over a crossroad and up the very steep 'stupid hill', so called because we used to ride this course the other way round and you had to be stupid to cycle down it. Follow the perimeter road round to the BMX track ride round it a few times until someone falls off then get back on the perimeter road along past the backs of some houses for about 1 mile then sharp right onto a grassy track bearing left at the bottom then up into the woods through a sort of narrow 's' bend and right up a short steep slope into the start of the area used for a national MTB trials event. Make this bit up as you go. We usualy ride all the way through to the bottom and then go back up a fire-road and do it all agian and again until someone falls off then cross a huge desert of soft sand up over a hill and back down to the car park.

Good whatever the weather. I ride this area about 3 or 4 times a week. Get some good lights and try some of the trails at night - Spooky.

Starting in Church Crookham, head for Tweseldown race course. From here there are a plethora of possible routes, the only limit is lung capacity and legs. Head for the top of Caesars Camp, the highest point in Hampshire (aptly named as it's believed Julius Caesar made camp there during his sojourn to the UK...). There are some fast downhill shingle/sand singletracks and fire roads. Heading north away from Caesars Camp takes you onto some of the army training ranges (perfectly safe and open to mtbkers, just don't touch anything resembling a bomb). Some of the wide open areas can get a little hard going if you get into the deeper sand. Get out there and do it!

Similar Products Used: Routes along the Basingstoke canal can be interesting, head towards Odiham, I recommend a lunch stop in the Water Witch Pub. The canal towpaths can get busy during summer months, always handy if you've had a skinfull of Guiness, there's always someone willing to fish you out!

This is a great place to MTB, there is such a varied amount of terrain, sand, rock, grass, gravel, mud, water, forest, bog. The variety is awesome for such a small area 25sq miles. i've been riding here for 4 years and you hardly see anyone. good for and summer evening ride.
Anyone can ride this area, you can pick a hard route with good climbs or a easy one for beginners with nice views and some good lakes.

I alway start from the water tower opp castle street/upper hale road junction. from here hang a left and head for the bumpy straight section, i always dive off to the left for a small peice of single track, but aim toward the beacon hill road. ride parallel and the the take the mile down hill section. This can be taken really fast, but watch out for walkers, dogs, and men with chainsaws cutting down trees! at the bottom hang a right up past the water company pump thing, then right again to the the lake. great place for a quick drink. carry on along the path and take the second left up a fire road. low gradient but get the blood pumping. up top go straight over the main path onto the small singletrack following the drainage stream (along the side of the hill). Keep going avoiding those damn prickly bushes that stab you until you reach the left drop off, descend here and follow the path to the left. This is a great bit to get some proper speed with some nice jumps. at the bottom (and it comes quick!) turn right, just before the main road turn right again and folow the sandy path up the hill. Once up be brave and really go some. there is a great flowing part here which needs speed. Pick a line and stick to it.At the bottom go through the car park and then through the gate and take a left over the man made bank. climb up the hill keeping to the left when it forks. you eventually meet with the road, turn right and peg it down the hill. follow the path all the way turning right after the pond (30 yards) climb again until you meet with the path, turn left and climb hard following the path to the right. this is now the highest point for quite a way with a great view of the ranges and the north downs. follow the path all the way round the top and you will come to a rock path dipping, go straight over and back onto the fire round. there is a cross junction here take the left and head straight until you are back at the water tower. (about 8 miles 45 mins). great trail for timing yourself and bettering your times. varient is massive, this trail really perimeters the camp.

Similar Products Used: Like the other review, Tunnel hill or the ranges in gerenal behing Ash. Pirbright has some excellent rides also without entering military land. I would advise buying a good OS map and really investigating Fleet, North downs, Mytchett, Pirbright, Ash, Normandy and surrounding areas.

God bless the British Army. This is a huge stretch of heathland which they use - very intermittently - for infantry training, the rest of the time it is virtually empty except for MTBers and dog-walkers.

The ride outlined above is good for a fat git hardtailer like me who needs to burn calories but doesn't want to die. However, there is scope for a much more technically challenging course to be run over virtually the same territory for those so inclined. Conversely, you can take younger or more nervous MTBers on a course round the top of the hill only.

Customer Service

Park up by the watertower at the Heath End-end of the Odiham road. Bear left past the watertower and reservoir for half a mile, coming out on a long straight fire road running east-west. Turn right along the fire road, after 700 yards turn off to the left and follow steep gravel track down the hill. The track comes out by two small reservoirs. Go past these and turn left by the pumping house. Climb the track up the hill, past a very gnarly oak tree. Take either the first or second paths to the left, either of which will bring you out back on the east-west fire road. I prefer the second path although it does have one insanely steep section which requires bike over the shoulder crossbike stylee.
