If your heading towards Harden with the Scout Camp on your left, if it’s the turn after the obvious one to the golf course then you can turn left at the bottom. Cross the slippy stream and follow it all the way back to the Harden end of the main path. Brings you out at the bottom of the descent.Posted 4 years agoB.A.NanaMember
close to Cottingley Estate on the steep fall line would suggest the one which comes out where the fence is broken down, near the bottom of the rockfest footpath. However, there are other lines nearby which just dead end at rhododendrons (presumably bordering the golf course). I’ve sometimes gone down the wrong lines trying to find Mugboo’s/Simon’s other line. Still easily get completely disorientated in there.Posted 4 years agoB.A.NanaMember
Mugboo has taken us down other little steep techy lines around there, but riding back out again long before the bottom. like I say, The most obvious other tracks I’ve tried, thinking I was on the line, have generally been dead ends. I might have been completely disorientated again tho.Posted 4 years agoTessMember
Well I go down that path, it veers a sharp left by a hole, follow that trail along til you hit another trail near a dry stone wall, there you can go left along to agap in a dry stone wall and down to the track that comes out near Steven Smiths or you can go right and follow along to a field which you cross to the golf course and then to the back lane by Shipley golf course. The trails are narrow, techy, roots rocky, steep sided and great fun. Blair witch project has got nothing on cottingley woods, sad about all the felling, bits of my favourite trails through there have been obliterated but I have had great fun working out some really good routes over the years.Posted 4 years ago
