Hurstwood Mountain bike trails are close to Burnley in Lancashire. These MTB trails border Hurstwood Reservoir in the adjoining woods.
There is a very short Blue graded trail and a lot of natural trail riding here. The Mary Towneley route passes here also if you fancy a short sweet detour from it.
Hurstwood Trail (Blue)
- The Hurtswood Blue graded MTB trail is a good beginners and novices trail with short slopes, corners and berms. It has only around 600m of fire road in the overall 1.6km of sweet flowing singletrack.
- Pennine Bridleway and Rams Clough (7km)
- This goes up past Hurstwood reservoir on the Mary Townley Loop. There is a bit of climbing and descending, surfaced bridleways, 'natural bridleways' and double track.
- Coal Clough Wind farm to Hurstwood and Back (8.5km)
- This route starts at the Coal Clough wind farm and goes along a section of the Mary Townley Loop to get across to the Hurstwood trail before retracing it steps back to the Coal Clough car park.
- Duke's Cut and Gorple Stones (25.8km)
- This route goes through open moors crossing a variety of terrain (some quite exposed).
