There is an active local community.
Parkwood Springs (Blue with Red options)
- The trail is a 2km route with pump sections, lips, berms, jumps, doubles and it all flows really well. It's designed as a blue graded trail (so all is rollable) with optional red lines.
- In 2016 the new Dual Slalom track opened. The 30-second blast has a set of berms linked together by sections of rollers which offer multiple possible combinations. The final right-hander is steep and long.
- The trail builders were BikeTrack.Org (who also built the Haggerston BMX track in Hackney) and they have been able to pack an amazing amount into such a small area. The best place to park is on Cookswood road which also gives access to the Car park; open on weekends.
- It has taken ten years of dedication to make this trail a reality. Dan Cook started the vision and which was made a reality by Jon Dallow of Sheffield City Council over last six years. Tirelessly Jon has worked with the council, the funders (Sports England and South Yorkshire Forest), the local friend's groups, the trail designers and community stakeholders to make this a reality. Jon has also worked with Steve Peat and Ride Sheffield to develop the designs and site.
- The area is also known for the Ski Village just next door.
