Tours & Highlights

    Awesome MTB descent

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    Brilliant mix of rock and grassy descent, can get quite wet after continued rain and there are a few gates. Watch out for walkers at peak times too although not too busy most of the time.

    By far the easiest route up and down Helvellyn with a bike, great for a big mountain experience for less technical riders.

    Sticks Pass

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    Fast and open at the top, becoming more narrow singletrack further down, and ending in a series of hugely fun switchbacks, Sticks Pass (the Ullswater side as a descent from west to east) is one of the many, many descent highlights in the Lakes.

    Beware though, there are a few fords and more than a couple of corners which you'll likely come a cropper on if you hurtle in to them too fast!

    Walna Scar Road

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    Recent accusations of sanitation belie the fact that this is still a cracking descent when run west to east.

    From the top, it's steep, very rocky and with some tight switchbacks. It's straightforward enough when taken slowly, but line choice is critical.

    Further down, the trail opens up and becomes less steep and disconcertingly fast - so watch your speed, especially on busier days. It goes without saying that the views are exceptional!
