Haldon Forest - Devon
#1
I spent today at Haldon Forest's Cafe Side downhill trails. They're short and not too steep but are well worth a look if you're in the area. Higher up it's narrow twisty trails, soft mulchy soil, plenty of roots and natural stuff. Lower down the hill the lines are wider and have lots of jumps incorporated into them, not my bag, but all looked well made.

Marginally less terrifying than Aston Hill, slower and techier than PORC. The push up is mellow and rideable. The trails are generally suitable for a trail bike. Take a look of you're nearby.

Here's a video I found on Youtube just to give you an idea

Despite being called 'Cafe Side' it's nowhere near the cafe or main Haldon Carpark. Here's where you park.
