Cycling & Mountain Biking Trails In Grizedale

Whether you've just bought your first bike, or you're happy shredding through rock gardens, Grizedale Forest offers a fantastic opportunity for natural cycling.

Here you will find some of the trails that we explore, and those that are way marked by Forestry England.  These trails are for information and inspiration only.  For some you need to be an experienced rider, for others they are perfect for a family day out.

Please note that unlike most traditional trails Forestry England haven't colour coded them in terms of difficulty in Grizedale.  The colours simply represent the makers you will follow around the forest.

Remember to pack the correct kit for the conditions, a full repair kit, and clothing suitable for the day.  When out on these trails you are on your own and in the wild, so make sure you can look after yourself.

And we are afraid that in whichever direction you head there is a 45 minute hill climb so go steady from the off (or hire an electric bike and whizz up them!).
