Howgills is on the border between the North Yorshire Dales and the South Lakes in the North of England. The riding is on natural singletrack and there is a remote yet epic feel to it. The climbs are steep, the views ace and there is lots of singletrack which is both flowing, rocky and fast.
This is quite a seasonal trail i.e. it can get quite muddy so think about sustainability and erosion and how the weather has been before setting off.
