A great place to help build and maintain your skills. The red is flowing and has some nice rolling jumps, berms, gaps, drops or you can ride around these, with 2 different routes to take on the second section after the fireroad and 2 different routes to finish the last section. Black route is gnarly and technical. There is a freeride section with beginner, intermediate and expert runs, all helping to develop your skills. Take your full face and get padded up. There is a breakout area at the hut under cover to sit down and have your food and drink and the obligatory portaloo. The trails are well maintained and run by well informed and friendly staff. £10 for a days run and £5 for half a day, well worth the money which goes back into helping keep this place well maintained. Saturday and Sunday opening only as the staff have day jobs, they run this place for the love of riding.

Good Points
Well kept trails
Friendly staff
Fast flowing downhill trails and freeride section
Great place to build skill levels
Bad Points
Push up to the start of the downhill can be muddy and a long slog
First 10 metres of the downhill could do with sorting out as it is very muddy.
Off road to the parking is a bit rough

There’s always a really great atmosphere regardless of the weather and the team are very friendly & welcoming to all - this was the most technical place I’d ever ridden the first time I went and I received nothing but encouragement and advice!

It’s a great place for progression, there’s a huge variety of features. I only ride the downhill lines but the free ride is massive, really well maintained and seems to have people traveling for miles to ride it!
Bad Points
The access road can be hard work to get up if the weather has been particularly bad, and also pushing up to the top of the DH lines can be quite boggy in places but for the gradient of the park it’s to be expected.

The place is rad, if you want to progress your riding and scare yourself in an adrenaline infused frenzy you need to go. Memberships are reasonably price and well worth the punt

It’s the most raw bike park in the uk, offering a red and a Black DH line and 3 awesome freeride lines. The infamous Valhalla as been said to have he biggest north shore drop in the country.
Super friendly and experienced team running e place too
Bad Points
Access up to the woods I a bit sketchy in the cold and there is only a portaloo, but tbf I’d rather take a squatie anyway

I am part of the build team up here at Cockhill so my opinions might be a but bias but I love the place.
looking up the hill on the Freeride side if the forest at all the wooden gaps, drops and bridges with all the green moss hanging off the tall pine trees you could be in the north shore in Canada ..... Maybe not haha but it has a great feel to the place. Currently a new BIGGER Freeride line being built, dirt jumps being tidied up for the summer and a few more steeper and technical downhill runs in the pipeline.

The trails cater for a wide verity of rider ability levels.
It is rideable all year round due to the surfacing on the Red DH and Freeride trail.
Dirt jumps.
The Freeride lines are line nothing else in this part of the country.
Only a small area of the woods currently tapped into, 10 x the the area of where the current trails are is yet to be built on.
Friendly team of builders and local riders.
Bad Points
Parking is an issue at the moment that we are aware of and have plans to rectify.
Toilet facilities are far from that of a 5 star hotel but at the end of the day we are mountain bikers, in a forest and the facility is still in its infancy.
For those fat lazy mountain bikers out there... There is not yet and uplift service.

First time at a gravity bike park loved every minute , very friendly welcome from Matt, Cath , Darren and the rest of the crew.
Water and snacks available at the hut.
Some very scary looking features in the huge freeride section unfortunately a bit beyond my current skill level.
Will definitely be back soon

Hands down the sickest place I’ve rode in the uk, was lucky enough to get a guided tour by Brad while it was closed mid week. Big ups to all the lads involved always keeping trails maintained and creating new stuff! Can’t fault it
