Decent local trails around Bath/Bristol?
With the change in the weather, i’m looking at finding some more routes around Bath that are a bit more weatherproof, i don’t tend to enjoy trails that a) get too muddy, and b) get torn up easily, i’d rather stay off them until they either freeze over or they dry out a bit. So in that, i’m looking for any locals, or people in the know that can point me to some better routes for winter, i guess the likes of Leigh Woods/Ashton Court will be good for this, but would be quite packed?
Any other stuff around?Posted 4 years agonickseeMember
Plenty of trails in the longleat forest without going near the black canon’s allotment. As has already been mentioned, bucklers/cannimore woods on the warminster side of centre parks is full of singletrack. Most of it holds up well in wet but plenty of roots to keep things interesting 🙂 There are More trails to be found on the shearwater side of centre parks as well if a bit more well hidden.Posted 4 years ago
Cheers for the map, i knew there was stuff up there, but no map, and weirdly when i searched bikely it didn’t come up, infact it still doesn’t when i search the map, it’s all road stuff that comes up.
I also need to get down to Warminster for the day i guess to have a search, not too bothered about mud or roots, it’s more about ripping the place up, if they hold up well then it sounds good, as i do prefer woods stuff to open landscape.Posted 4 years agonickseeMember
not a fan of ripping up the trails either, i do try to avoid the place after long periods of heavy rain but you could say that about most natural trails. Longleat woods certainly gets much lower traffic on the trails than around bath/bristol which does help them stay relatively freshPosted 4 years ago
