Summary:
Went there a few weeks ago.bmx track is always good fun. Worn out though and needs major re-haul.Over the last few weeks we've discovered various routes and sections within the area. There is a few small drops near a still used tank training slope. Also a hidden downhill course approx 20 mins from the bmx track which is found from the main viewpoint. Look left towards another hill. All in all a good days ride.

Recommended Route:
just ride and find.

Reviewed by: Big Al , from Heath End Surrey

Summary:
God bless the British Army. This is a huge stretch of heathland which they use - very intermittently - for infantry training, the rest of the time it is virtually empty except for MTBers and dog-walkers. The ride outlined above is good for a fat git hardtailer like me who needs to burn calories but doesn't want to die. However, there is scope for a much more technically challenging course to be run over virtually the same territory for those so inclined. Conversely, you can take younger or more nervous MTBers on a course round the top of the hill only.

Recommended Route:
Park up by the watertower at the Heath End-end of the Odiham road. Bear left past the watertower and reservoir for half a mile, coming out on a long straight fire road running east-west. Turn right along the fire road, after 700 yards turn off to the left and follow steep gravel track down the hill. The track comes out by two small reservoirs. Go past these and turn left by the pumping house. Climb the track up the hill, past a very gnarly oak tree. Take either the first or second paths to the left, either of which will bring you out back on the east-west fire road. I prefer the second path although it does have one insanely steep section which requires bike over the shoulder crossbike stylee.

Summary:
great place to ride. well drained but can get muddy (adds to the fun) also check out the bmx track at the farnham end

Recommended Route:
from church crookham head to the tweesldown pub turn left just before follow the road for about 1.5 miles turn of the road through a gate in to a field. all around this area lot of short dh runs with drops and small gap jumps, these a a great laugh with your mates. also head to the top of the hill for some good fast and technical decents a good little climb as well. there are lot of good routes as well and we are going to build some north shore style stuff to in the near future.

Reviewed by: Richard , from Farnham

Summary:
This is a great place to MTB, there is such a varied amount of terrain, sand, rock, grass, gravel, mud, water, forest, bog. The variety is awesome for such a small area 25sq miles. i've been riding here for 4 years and you hardly see anyone. good for and summer evening ride.
Anyone can ride this area, you can pick a hard route with good climbs or a easy one for beginners with nice views and some good lakes.

Recommended Route:
I alway start from the water tower opp castle street/upper hale road junction. from here hang a left and head for the bumpy straight section, i always dive off to the left for a small peice of single track, but aim toward the beacon hill road. ride parallel and the the take the mile down hill section. This can be taken really fast, but watch out for walkers, dogs, and men with chainsaws cutting down trees! at the bottom hang a right up past the water company pump thing, then right again to the the lake. great place for a quick drink. carry on along the path and take the second left up a fire road. low gradient but get the blood pumping. up top go straight over the main path onto the small singletrack following the drainage stream (along the side of the hill). Keep going avoiding those damn prickly bushes that stab you until you reach the left drop off, descend here and follow the path to the left. This is a great bit to get some proper speed with some nice jumps. at the bottom (and it comes quick!) turn right, just before the main road turn right again and folow the sandy path up the hill. Once up be brave and really go some. there is a great flowing part here which needs speed. Pick a line and stick to it.At the bottom go through the car park and then through the gate and take a left over the man made bank. climb up the hill keeping to the left when it forks. you eventually meet with the road, turn right and peg it down the hill. follow the path all the way turning right after the pond (30 yards) climb again until you meet with the path, turn left and climb hard following the path to the right. this is now the highest point for quite a way with a great view of the ranges and the north downs. follow the path all the way round the top and you will come to a rock path dipping, go straight over and back onto the fire round. there is a cross junction here take the left and head straight until you are back at the water tower. (about 8 miles 45 mins). great trail for timing yourself and bettering your times. varient is massive, this trail really perimeters the camp.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Like the other review, Tunnel hill or the ranges in gerenal behing Ash. Pirbright has some excellent rides also without entering military land. I would advise buying a good OS map and really investigating Fleet, North downs, Mytchett, Pirbright, Ash, Normandy and surrounding areas.

Reviewed by: Gavin Lowle , from Church Crookham. UK.

Summary:
Good whatever the weather. I ride this area about 3 or 4 times a week. Get some good lights and try some of the trails at night - Spooky.

Recommended Route:
Starting in Church Crookham, head for Tweseldown race course. From here there are a plethora of possible routes, the only limit is lung capacity and legs. Head for the top of Caesars Camp, the highest point in Hampshire (aptly named as it's believed Julius Caesar made camp there during his sojourn to the UK...). There are some fast downhill shingle/sand singletracks and fire roads. Heading north away from Caesars Camp takes you onto some of the army training ranges (perfectly safe and open to mtbkers, just don't touch anything resembling a bomb). Some of the wide open areas can get a little hard going if you get into the deeper sand. Get out there and do it!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Routes along the Basingstoke canal can be interesting, head towards Odiham, I recommend a lunch stop in the Water Witch Pub. The canal towpaths can get busy during summer months, always handy if you've had a skinfull of Guiness, there's always someone willing to fish you out!
