Good Points
Great for kids starting out, nice forest.
I see a lot of people moan about the parking prices. But ask yourself this, where else are you going to have a day out for less that what it costs to park? If you go to the cinema as a family your looking at £70+ to sit in for an hour and a half stuffing your face with a £10 pick n mix. So for me £10 parking for a family day out in the forest is very reasonable
Bad Points
Red trail is very deceiving, compare it to trails up and down the country you would grad it Blue, Swinley Blue is more challenging than Thetfords red. It’s ok for a poodle around. A lot of pedestrians on the trails, that’s fine you get that sometimes. But here more than anywhere else. Some sections have not been thought out very well, it’s poorly signed. For a family this is a decent trail for introducing kids, I went with my nephews who usually just ride scooters and they found these trails easy and enjoyed them. So thumbs up for that. But if you want something with a bit more about it, travel further afield. If your used to riding proper red and black trails, and expect to ride a red at Thetford you will be dispointed

I have seen parties of schoolchildren riding the trails not sure what they think so would not recommend or encourage this at the moment. Sorry.

Bad Points
If intending to ride Limeburner or beater trails carry a machete or other sharp implement as parts are impassable due to overgrown nettles and ferns and have only been cut where vehicle access is possible.

Thetford has got better with the rock gardens and new style pump tracks, a little more investment and concentratition on black graded routes and it could be really good

User Review

Good Points
Plenty of miles
Bad Points
Not enough up to date trails.

Berms, jumps, tabletops and flowing tracks.

Some black graded runs with drop offs and more technical sections would be great.

Thetford is too XC focuses and would be great to cater for dirt bikes and Enduro riding.

Would you recommend?
Yes
