Kings Wood, Challock, Nr Ashford
#1
"As an ancient woodland site, King's Wood is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. The main species of tree include Sweet Chestnut, Corsican Pine and Douglas Fir. To enjoy the best of the forest you may wish to take our Beech walk and see the unusual sculptures dotted around.
The Forest car park is well positioned for picnic areas and the children's play area. Designed for younger children, a number of unusual play structures have been created to represent creatures of the forest."

But enough of that old bollocks. It also has lots of tracks and trails through it that need to be explored.

Keep an "eye on", now that is lazy, you could be there in under half hour. (stating the obvious and saying so am I is not allowed)

Someone has already done the work and planned a couple or routes.

It was very similar to one of the KT rides, took in a Wye loop and the top of Kings Woods if I remember right

Hello All,

Just found this site and realised what i've been missing. I live in Ashford and have been riding Kings Wood for about 3 years now so know pretty much all the routes. There are some cracking bits of trail, we have a route we do thats about 9 miles long riding from the top car park.

Completely recommend it, there are some really fast sections of flowy single track, some steep climbs and fire road which runs around the woods. The odd deer running across in front of the trail intent on knocking you off always makes it interesting.

There is a route from the Warren, Ashford which rides up through the warren, bit of road, across some fields and up a horrible hill which leads into the back of the woods, nice ride round the woods then back the same way. There's a really long ride which goes from the Warren, up to the Glider club at Challock where theres a cracking bit of DH trail, then across the rural through Eastwell Manor then ride up to the woods, round that then back home. (very long ride which i've only been crazy enough to ride a handful of times).

What sort of length route you guys after ?, i can try and plot one on multimap or something or if your interested i wouldnt mind meeting up with a bunch of people and ill show you the route we ride, word of warning though i ride quite a heavy full sus bike so im not the fastest on the boring stuff.

Happy riding guys and keep the rubber side down.

Si
