Loads of 'em. Short singletracks, dowhill sections, crazy jumps even sort of 4X track. Constantly changing as woods are harvested and new trails pop up. Like a giant play area.

Summary:
I can't get enough of Puddletown Forest, it's got everything crammed into a tiny space. The single track is evolving all the time and there's always loads of it. It's also got a jump section, some northshore, kind of a duel course, plenty of big jumps and drops to be found, just keep looking and you'll find more. I've been riding for years and it still has challenges for me, but at the same time it's ideal for beginners too, there's something for everyone. Full on downhillers may find the trails a bit short and windy but you can still get plenty of speed in some places. People travel a long way to ride at this forest so go check it out if you havn't been already.

Also check out ride-puddletown.co.uk to find out where all the trails are hiding.

Recommended Route:
Just pull into one of the carparks and go explore...

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Portlands got some good riding on offer and Blandford bike park is pretty near by, haven't been there myself though.
