Cyclists on 'The Loop', Hamsterley Forest

Hamsterley Forest is one of the Northeast’s premier mountain bike destinations, with over 2000 hectares of forest to explore on 33 miles of waymarked trails and countless more miles of seldom travelled forest road.

Whether it is high octane thrill seeking you are after on one of the extreme downhill courses, or a quiet cycle with your family, Hamsterley Forest has something for cyclists of all-abilities. Download the latest map of the Hamsterley Forest mountain bike trail network here.

Hamsterley Trailblazers is a charity set up by enthusiastic local mountain bikers to promote their sport in the forest. They have raised funds to build new singletrack trails and meet monthly to trail build.
