A nice gentle ride out where you can find some good roots and turns. If you search hard, or speak to the nice staff in the shop, you will find some of the little gems such as the more DH style short run that runs down the whole valley, some fun boardwalk parts, mini DH runs in the wooded area, and a fun but tight berm section that looks fairly new and fresh. Other than these the rest is just nice for a pedal out. Quite interesting to find out we rode right past staring at what we thought was a cool castle type building to get to the top of the valley to realise it was actually the Scientology HQ a few days later....

Its got some fun bits and would be a good place for new riders. The facilities are good and staff were friendly. If you're more experienced you may find it a little uninspiring. Plus annoying dog walkers beware!

Good Points
Good facilities. Friendly staff. Some of the woodland areas were quite fun. The small sections of singles track was good, with some little jumps.
Bad Points
my biggest annoyance was dog walkers on the trails. If I go to a paid moutain bike park I dont expect to have to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting a dog thaf was off its leed.

I rode this on my 4X bike on a wet day and as the soil is clay based it was a mud fest and quite a slog. It has a nice natural feel and the type of place you just explore and explore rather than keep to one route. Pop into shop first to pay but also to get map and good advice. I'll return but in better weather and a more practical bike.
