Haldon Forest Cycle Trails

About

Discover Haldon Forest Park on two wheels with trails for every ability in our 3,500 acre woodland just 15 minutes from Exeter.

Cycle Hire
Hire bicycles for the whole family at Forest Cycle Hire, next to the Ranger's Office. Call 01392 833768 for bookings and information or visit www.forestcyclehire.co.uk.

Skills Area & Pump Loop
Purpose-built to help cyclists develop new off-road skills, why not make use of the numerous features before you head out onto the trail? Suitable for novice to advance riders.

Discovery Trail
Our all-ability trail with fun features for children, ideal for riders of all ages who are gaining their confidence. With stunning views across Exeter and Dartmoor, please be aware that this trail is shared with walkers.

Spicers Trail (Blue Grade)
This trail is a great confidence builder, introducing a combination of surfaces with some narrow sections and gentle gradients. Spicers is the next step for those who have mastered the basics of cycling and are ready to move on from the Discovery Trail. Please note, there is a short 'two-way traffic' section near the beginning of the trail.

Kiddens Trail (Blue Grade)
Progress from the Spicers Trail with this singletrack trail offering more challenging terrain with greater changes in gradient.

Ridge Ride Trail (Red Grade)
This trail follows Haldon ridge and explores some of the most beautiful parts of the forest. This is a technical, fast and flowing trail with tight corners and lively descents to test your reflexes. This trail is for experienced riders only, with appropriate bikes and protective equipment.

Ridge Cafe
When you can pedal no more, refuel at the Ridge Cafe with a selection of delicious homemade light bites and cakes.
