red trail has some very good technical parts to it and also some very fast sweeping bends and tight spots. The black trail starts off pretty much like the red trail but soon turns into ultra technical downhill sections aswell as uphill with some difficult tree dogging parts. Have fun

Customer Service

Fantastic area to bike. The red run is a good distance and has a lot of varied terrain. The black run did get a bit boggy in places and we had to carry the bikes as we were up to our axles in mud (this is after a long dry period!!). Everything from sand, loose wet rocks, gravel, fallen trees, branches, etc... you get the idea. We had a great weekend here, highly recommended. The red run was more looked after than some of the black and all routes are marked quite clearly.

Customer Service

Red or the black, or if you need more, join them together.

This is a mixture of forest road and singletrack.It appears that efforts have been made to emulate the awsome trails of the Coed y Brenin forest in Wales,but on a budget!This unfortunately shows itself in the quality of the singletrack.Its not that its not an interesting and taxing trail,but it is somewhat spoiled by the mud!Every piece of singletrack is covered in the stuff,varying thicknesses and grades,but mud nonetheless.I think if a little more cash had been injected to provide some form of base to the singletrack then this trail would definately have been up there with the Welsh Wizards,but as it stands you have to be prepared to be distracted from youe enjoyment of the trail by the brown stuff.Perhaps I have just ridden it at the wrong times of year,try it after a long dry spell - but then again it is the Yorkshire Moors so you might be waiting a long time for that.
Dont be put off trying the trail though,as long as you prepare yourself beforehand you will enjoy it,some of the singletrack is excellent!

The forest has 4 way marked trails so there is something for everyone. Go give it a try

Customer Service

The way markings in Dalby are excellent and the trails well maintained. For a hack out try the red run. For a quick blast try the Black run. If you fancy say 2 hours then you can start at the visitors centre pick up the red run untill it crosses the black run and add the balck run on to your ride, then head for home on the remainder of the red run, its an excellent ride.
