Plymbridge Woods mountain bike trails are in National Trust land on the edge of Plymouth in England. They have been around since summer 2013.

The track was soon closed though due to erosion but re-opened in November 2015 after significant work.

Blue Trail (red descent)

  • The Plym Ridge Ride is 5km long. It is blue graded and kicks off from Drake’s Trail (NCR27) which is 1.5km North of Plymbridge car park. The actual trail is 3.5km but if you add in the car park leg it is 5km. The last 1.5km descent known as the ‘Plym Ridge Ride Plus 1.5km  was re-graded red in November 2015.
  • It runs through Plym Bridge Woods has technical climbs and steep descents, singletrack trail and berms.
  • You can repeat the first half of the trail by following the blue arrows for ‘Repeat loop’.

I would like to hear the views of others about the Blue ridge route as I am sure I can't be the only one with this view.

Good Points
I must say I am not normally negative but I found this particular trail pretty grim a lot of pain and not much gain,
There are a lot of arduous climbs with very tight hairpin bends which are difficult to get round if you are not in the right gear.I don't pretend to be an expert rider but I do ride in Haldon Forest 5 days a week with my dogs and I would not give any of there trails a negative review.
I must say the area as a whole is a nice place with plenty of water and walks .
Bad Points
I found the Blue ridge trail ill designed and without any wow factor I regularly frighten myself at Holden Forest and I am always in awe of the views there which riding the blue route didn't give me at Plym.
I am sorry for the negativity but thats how I feel.
Would you recommend?
