There’s no end to the MTB trails in the Lake District and that’s very fortunate because riding here is a thoroughly life-affirming, camera-battery-draining, unadulterated pleasure-giving experience. If that sounds like an exaggeration, it’s not. This fantastic national park has everything you could desire from ideal beginner trails to white-knuckle expert routes, all waiting for your tires to start rolling. 

With forest tracks and tough ascents plus jaw-dropping views and graded routes, mountain bike trails in the Lake District have plenty of variety. Why not try your pedals at the exquisitely maintained routes in Whinlatter Forest? Intermediate single track with sweeping berms can be found here as well as more challenging routes. 

From the huge heights of Sticks and Nan Bield Passes to the family-friendly bridleways of Witherslack and Grizedale, you can push yourself as much or as little as you like. Technical singletrack, breathtaking descents and unforgettable views abound.
