Great bike park

One of the best places in south of England on my personal opinion.
Trails are well build and maintained for what I can see. Great place, defiantly visiting again and again.

User Review

Good Points
Lift is so efficient that you can get really tired even in the short winter days with over 12 runs.
Helpful staff
Bad Points
During the winter periods, after heavy rains, some of the trails are really hard to ride.
You can pick up a lot of clay from where the lift starts making every other ride harder and harder, could do with some rubble etc.

Okeford Hill Bikepark

Fantastic park. Wont find a bigger variety of well maintained trails, fun people and a regular uplift.

User Review

Good Points
Okeford Hill has a wide variety of trails and an uplift that does runs every 5-10 minutes. The people there are very friendly and the trails are kept tidy and clean. Always more features being built and you can never run out of things to try out and master.
Bad Points
Some areas of trails are a little unstable and making it a little more rough and meaning less flow. Sometimes a few sharp rocks on the trails making it a little prone to punctures at times but usually smooth.

Fun, interesting and challenging tracks with fast uplift

New trails are being planned and the current ones are great if you like natural challenging tracks with plenty of line choices.
