The Castleton Carrousel

The Castleton Carrousel is a mountain bike route in the Dark Peak side of the Peak District. It is graded technically Hard / difficult and is 25.8 miles long. It takes you round and round and up and down on the trails around Castleton. It includes some of the best descents the Dark Peak area has to offer and a few testing climbs. There are a few options though. The climb out of Bradwell is a push for half its length but worth it for the descent. However, there is a short cut. For more technical descending it’s also possible to include The Beast as an ‘Out & Back’. Which ever way you do it, it’s a technical and demanding route that will push your fitness and skills to the limit.


Start on the lane leading to the Treak Cavern, there is plenty of parking available in the pay and display laybys (GR137830)
