Summary:
Fuckin' Pipin' Trail - when you get there ask for Buss, Baggy and Goodenough and they'll show you around.

Recommended Route:
From the centre of Coalville head towards King Edward VII school. Just before it there is a walkers path to the left. Get on that and follow it into the top end of the Coalville woods. Ply in those until you come out at a row of houses - to the right is an entrance in the wall. Go through this and double back until you come to the path you got off just before. Then negotiate the other side of the wood until it brings you out on a main road.
Turn right - 200 yrds and then turn into the derelict quarry. Follow this through and head to the left. Follow this track which will lead you through the monastery and then onto the main road again. Head left until you begin to enter Whitwick - turn right before you reach any houses and then left into the woods.
After that then you are one your own. Kick back, come off and be a goodfaller!!!!!

Summary:
Oooooh, now we're talking. I grew up about 3 miles from these woods, and cut my MTB teeth in them. Lots and lots of all sorts of riding, much of it most excellent. Just watch out for the dog walkers, there's usually lots of them.

Recommended Route:
Follow your nose around the woods. There's a car park off the Whitwick to Shepshed road which passes near Blackbrook Reservoir. The woods are actually called Cademan Woods if you want to find them on a map.

Not too many if you want to stay legal. If not... well, Email me...
