Hornsea Rail Trail - TRAIL

Hornsea Rail Trail - Trail, Hull, United Kingdom

The trail starts off as a paved track for about 1 mile before turning into a bridleway. It is pretty much a flat ride through the Holderness countryside, with unspectacular but peaceful views of the surrounding farms.

There is nothing on this trail to challenge a serious mountain biker (I only ride it for relaxation). The only climb is about 25ft up to the road which it crosses at New Ellerby and the only 'descent' is about 20ft down to a wooden bridge a mile further along (this won't challenge anything but a begginner who may be phased by the sudden loss of traction as the track is quite gravelly there).
However, for a relaxing day trip for a begginner/family, it is ideal, as it is not physically challenging and provides a reasonably long ride with no traffic to contend with (except for crossing Roads). Also, there's the added bonus of Fish n Chips or an iced cream by the beach when you get to Hornsea.

Summary: No major excitement for hardcore riders (if you fit into this category, it gets half a star) but if you want to have a relaxing ride out, get out and ride this on a sunny day.

Customer Service

Follow the trail straight on - you can't get lost until you reach Hornsea. At this point, turn right then left, follow the street you now find yourself on and at the roundabout get off, walk straight across and up the stairs to follow the rest of the trail until you can see the sea.
