Good Points
Took my 12 year son for a days riding and has stopped asking to go back,
Watched a race meet and he was hooked.
Main track I not long but there are a good selection of lines at the bottom to really get the grin going.
Also lots of short pump and jump tracks in the woods the get your teeth into.
Bad Points
Only bad thing I can write is its an hour and three quarters away and I work most weekends or would be there as often as poss.

Good Points
As it is situated in one of the highest owns in Sussex, it's the perfect place to ride downhill, not to mention the free admission (minus the £20 for insurance). The community is great, and there is even a Facebook group where you can chat, banter and organise events. Competitions are held regularly for the more advanced, along with trips to MTB resorts. The track has a great variety or difficult and novice areas - it isn't just one straight run, allowing for improvement of skills and an interesting ride. The track is added to regularly and is maintained well. Overall there are some great things about this place, and it is maintained well.

With it being just a 5 minute cycle from Crowborough station it is the perfect and ideal place to ride; thoroughly reccomend giving it a go.
Bad Points
There aren't a load of facilities, there isn't really a 'sign in', place or any real formal entry parts, however this is what makes it so good, the chilled out attitude is what makes a good MTB venue.
