Summary:
Fantastic for downhill and jumps, really good smooth flowing sections. I should know because i live right next door and me and my mates built quite a lot of it. Some really fantastic jumps including a 12'er and one somewhere close to 20'. Try it because the feeling on some of those trails is second to none.

Recommended Route:
You should really explore the woods because despite being relatively small their are a lot of hidden trails which also are worth mastering.
Theres also a jump right at the bottom which i got hospitalised by, take it from me WEAR A LID.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None what so ever!

Reviewed by: Jimferno ,  Downhiller , from Blackburn

Summary:
Decent sized DH run, not too much of a bugger pushing ye old bike back up. A 12' double towards the top of the track and a few small drops n jumps dotted about down the course. Nice berms scattered throughout, couple of tight sections and a few routes but none really living up to the main run. A good all round track suited to both DH bikes and hardtails.

Recommended Route:
As you enter the woods from the farmers field continue along the footpath and you will see the main track cross the footpath, Simply start pushing up and watch out for me flying down! Oh and DON'T RIDE through the farmers field!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None, the Blackburn area is pretty poo!
