Summary:
Okay, this place has everything, and for free, i love it, some of the reviews below say 'hard to find trails' yea it is, but after 2-3 rides you know where everything is, and there is something for everyone, Xc, Downhill, Freeride, Enduro, Dirt jumpers.
I love it and try to get there every saturday, certainly the best and easiest access place for me, esher shore is down my road but for the sake of getting to bracknell for me id rather bracknell than esher.

Recommended Route:
uem if you have a gps type in 'Coral reef' (its a big water park just over the road)
or type in 'the lookout' which is the entrance to the forest.
or if like me you have to get the train, from london get the reading line, get off at martins heron, go right out the station and pretty much go straight at all the roundabouts and you should end up at the m3, cross over on the bridge and you will be at coral reed, when you get a chance to cross the road to the left of coral reef then your at the lookout.
excact same for people coming from reading direction except cross over the station bridge.
also its at the end of the m3 coming from london (richmond)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Aston hill
esher shore

Summary:
The best trail for miles around without doubt. LOADS to do for ALL disciplines - XC, Freeride and DH.

Well worth the trip and with any luck once we get the bid for London being Olympic hosts - this'll be the Olympic MTB Circuit as proposed!

Recommended Route:
Off M3 junction 3, towards Bracknell town, left signed to "The Lookout". You can't miss it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
QE Country Park - Petersfield, Hampshire.
Great XC trails, with some good (but fairly short) DH sections.

Summary:
Good fun, like the guys say nice half day for getting muddy. Don't know about downhill, not long or technical enough for real rush. Nice and free of walkers and horseriders off the fire roads, so you can get your head down and just enjoy.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
South Hill Jumps (near golden farmer pub , next to park)Enough to keep you busy for a day.

Summary:
Very good for long, bendy and fast downhills the further u get away from the entrance then the closer u r to the entrance the more XC trails u get! Needs more jump spots, but b careful if building because it's private land!

Recommended Route:
Down the A30 in Bagshot, opposite Humphries garage turn up towards the church, go to the top of that road and turn right at the T-junction then take t he 1st left, go down that road, which will turn to a dirt track, go all the way along to the barrier at the end then about 5ft after it on the left is a broken down barbed wire fence, go through there and your in! Beware of land owners because this is an illegal entrance!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
DERA test trax, Bagshot
