good mixx of XC and DH, but alot more DH, some VERY technical trails and some not so, large jumps known as the quary jumps, 10 - 15 foot distiance and also as high to some any level of rider can do. possibly as many as 10 diffrent Dh trails from 2-3 mins to do to less then 15-40 seconds, there are also 30 foot hip jumps and 10 foot ski style jump, if possible to get to it is a great place to ride for any ablity, however to do the more technical trails it will require sutible bikes and armour depending on trails, if going ahead to walk the trails it is not a good idea to walk the trails, as a few dog walkers have been hit by riders as they were on trails that where obviosly being used regualy, which i have had a bad crash due to a walker by avioding him so keep on your gard while ridding

Summary:
Leckhampton is an excellent venue for DH riders there is around 10 trails of varying difficulty some of which can be linked together half way down.
Most trails are very steep , loose , rocky and rooty with one slightly flatter but faster main trail.
Jumps are all over the place with most of the easyer ones in the very bottom quarry at the car park apart from the big hip jump and ski launcher jump which are pretty large :).
In the next quarry up there are the bigger step down jumps which take a fairly good standard of riding to do cleanly.
Over all I would say any ability of rider could ride there but begginers could be in over their heads on some of the trails due to how very steep and loose they are.
A highly reccomended location , just take your litter home and please do not build or modify the hill in anyway as its a sight of special scientific interest.

i agree leckhampton hill is a great bike hill it is the best i have been to my dad has an orange patriot dh which is perfect for the hill because because it is made for downhill i have a carrera hellcat which is downhill customised and it handles great around the hill it is great for downhill and there is a bit of cross country over the top

i disagree with parking at daisy bank road there is a couldie sack down the road it is better to park there because across the road from the car park at daisy bank road there is a slight downhill track following along side of bath road
