Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
Debate has long raged as to whether it's better to ride the Garburn Pass from Kentmere to Troutbeck or vice versa. The trail is much steeper on the Kentmere side; more gradual on the Troutbeck side. Once an extremely technical descent, surfacing work necessitated by the large amount of walking traffic rendered the Kentmere descent an exercise in wash-out braking, so many people prefer to ride/push up from Kentmere and enjoy the more languid descent down to Troutbeck.
