MTB trails in Northumberland will capture your heart and refuse to let it go. You won’t mind though, because this extraordinary, wild county has an unbelievable wealth of trails over moorland, through deep forests and up to staggering viewpoints.

Kielder Water and Forest Park is a biking paradise, with lovingly-maintained trails to suit experts as well as beginners. Follow flat, disused railways or climb up tough tracks through brooding woodland. Mountain biking trails in Northumberland National Park will lead you across giant landscapes where heather shimmers on the hills and you might just forget that other people exist at all. 

If it’s huge skies you’re after, the open moorland singletrack on Blanchland Moor will reward the leg effort required. Or perhaps you love devastating climbs and white-knuckle, life-affirming descents? Wooler Common will provide whilst Rothbury is ideal for gentle, whimsical trails. Wherever you pedal, expect tremendous views, serene landscapes and bountiful nature.
