Reviewed by: Mark , from Bromley

Summary:
As you enter at the top of the hill, this section has good jumps and short trails. A few good short downhill tracks down the valleys but not to steep. One mad jump hidden down near the bottom. Good when wet as it's not too muddy. A couple of years ago some of the steep descents were turned in to steps so watch out.

Recommended Route:
The top section has the best jumps and trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hayes common near the school theres a small section with lots of jumps in. Foxes wood near shirly has a few good jumps and very short tracks. Beckenham place park at Ravesbourne station has some very steep drops suitable for trails riders.

Some good play areas up there. Great place to start out. Don't annoy anyone though.

Watch out. Cycling is prohibited in Shirley Hills.
Be nice and polite to everyone up there and you shouldn't have any problems!

We go out all around that area every week. There are loads of hidden trails which are really good.
