The 18km Red Beater Trail combines open routes with fast-flowing single-track sections. It’s a reasonably challenging ride through beech woods and pine plantations, suited to experienced mountain bikers.
Drive to the Norfolk coast where routes 1 and 30 take you the entire length from Kings Lynn to Great Yarmouth, via a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The red Lime Burner Trail features crests and dips, bomb holes and single-track. Near the end, 'The Beast' takes you on a roller coaster of a ride. Hardest of all are the Black 'Mountain Bike Pits' found throughout the forest.
