I can understand a lot of effort has went into all the trails on the Estate but there is so much potential here especially with the gradient. The decents arn't the fastest except the first one down from the top of red as they are built on a diagonal course rather than straight down which would be good for downhill features. Have a look at Bike Park Wales for an example plus they pull in a lot of money and are always very busy, you have all the right ingredients to be even better than them and could be the best in the U.K.

Worth the trip if you're fit enough for the climbing. Some interesting obstacles on the red and fast and flowing - confidence inspiring.

Good Points
Top loop (from the summit) is fast and flowing and good fun. Take the shortcut back through the forest just after Gully leap and you can make a circuit out of the top end. Lots of climbing here so make sure you're up for that. Trail conditions safe mostly excellent, which is to be expected of a brand new centre.

Especially liked that the red had plenty of black options on it.
Bad Points
Could feel like a lot of climbing with not enough reward for some people on this. Some of the climbs are especially punishing due to extremely sticky mud that feels like treacle on the tyres. Really depends what you are used to.

Has a free bike wash but it needs to be better quality and have something to stand the bike on or against.
