1. Hunger Hill trail

The Hunger Hill trail is first on our list of Cheshire cycle rides and at 6.4km is a great family-friendly route situated at the heart of Delamere Forest. An ideal introduction to off-road cycling, the trail is made up of well-maintained forest roads and includes some short, sharp climbs, with picturesque views of the forest. Hunger Hill also offers beautiful views over Blakemere Moss.

2. Whitemoor trail

For a slightly longer Cheshire bike trail the Whitemoor trail is an ideal choice with 11km of woodland to be explored within Delamere Forest. A peaceful cycle route, the Whitemoor trail takes in some of the quieter areas of the forest including meres, mosses, and beautiful lake side views. A waymarked trail we recommend visiting in autumn when the leaves change from verdant green to golds, ambers and russets!

3. Old Pale Hill

Another favourite Cheshire bike trail is Old Pale Hill, which takes in a section of Delamere Forest and is perfect for mountain biking. The trail reaches heights of 176m offering breath-taking views from the top of Pale Heights. Old Pale Hill can be approached by a range of routes, but we recommend ascending from Old Pale Climb and making your decent via Cheeky Old Pale Climb.
