There are XC and DH trials, plus plenty of firetrack as well. There is amarked firetrack route (green signs) and a marked XC trail (black signs). There are many fast and technical descents and single track areas, not all are marked, you just have to find them but it's not difficult to.

Summary:
Im a local rider and have been riding in wharncliffe for years. If your a downhiller and havent been, then you need to get out there! There is something for every downhiller from fast, less techical stuff to recently added north shore style ladders for the hardcore (or insane riders out there!) All of the courses start from the same path and end on the same path at the bottom, so if you ride down one then ride along and look for tyre marks coming out of the woods, you'll find the other courses. Diamond Back course is good as is NEMBA and Steve Peat, there are also some cool drops and stuff dotteds all over! Well worth a visit!

Recommended Route:
Search Google for Wharncliffe woods and scroll down, there are plenty of sites with directions on!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bole Hills BMX Track at Walkley.
Chainbreaker trails, Abbeydale
Grenoside Woods (Near wharncliffe)

Summary:
The DH runs range from exhilarating to insane. Some of the gradients will make your ring momentarily lose it's strength just looking down them. The locals (Codley and Smits in particular) were great. Many of them wear full face helmets and armour... A fair indication of the terrain and it's difficulty in parts.
Ask someone to direct you to the waterfall and ride it. It's insane. The scale and gradient are like a ski jump and that's no exageration. A great day out with
plenty of variety from fire roads to DH suicide.
I did notice that the ideal bike for Wharncliffe was leaning toward Patriot/Bullit territory... discs and plenty of travel front and back.

Recommended Route:
I turned off the M1 just before Sheffield heading from Wakefield. Into Grenoside, turn right up Salt Box Lane
and there is parking at the top of the hill.

Don't really know the area too well but I'll be back.

Reviewed by: Chris , from Pontefract

Summary:
Start at the top car park and head down and across to the edge. there is a small uphill (Moor) section and then it opens up to single track that is really quite technical and is the sorta track that will shake the blood out of your arms and legs but a good rush becasue your right on the edge of the cliff looking out at the lakes and village below
