Chopwell is my local trails being from Consett and I ride there regularly. I think it's a great place to learn skills and gain confidence as nothing is too big or scary. Saying that I'm not the biggest fan of the power line and the new black route as they both are too flat to really throw down on a long travel bike.

I usually hit the power line as a warm up before venturing over to the other side of the woods near Lintzford. There's the big step up, steep trails with some pretty Gnar exposure and some rad little lines worth shredding.

The main complaint my riding group has is the lack of bigger tables and trail features but you can't have everything.

I wouldn't want to go here every weekend, but if your pushed for time there is still fun to be had here and there's enough hills to keep your fitness up.
