Foredown Tower

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Great 30mile route that has some excellent down hills and good trail riding. The decent down to Findon is a fast blast and the hill up from the Henfield road is a killer. To join up with the track heading east by Mile Oak Farm back to the tower is steep and grassy.

Summary:
Watch out for the 7ft drop, its about half way down by this time you'll be going 25mph+ its a bit hairy!!!!

Recommended Route:
A Better SUPER DH trail then that is on clayton hill, if you find the house with a train track going under neath it, go off down the road opposite, go past the church and you'll see a path going up!!! Follow this path all the way to the top then turn left and keep going till you get to a fence.Once your at the fence look left and you'll see a little opening under the tree's go down there.....be carefull at first!!!!

Very good biking to be had in the area. Loads and loads of trails to explore. The foredown tower is a quiter place to start then the more popular Devils Dyke hotspot

Recommended Route:
Start at the Foredown Tower Car Park and take one of the many routes north. Go and explore
