The North Face Trail offers a rush of curves, berms and north shore, uphill and downhill which takes riders on an adventure trail through Grizedale Forest.
The trail starts at the visitor centre and consists of a 16km loop which includes 9 sections of sinuous singletrack trail on the west side of Grizedale Forest. The trail offers adrenaline pumping sections of single track descent along with leg burning ascents contouring through oak woodlands and conifer forest. This challenging trail also gives the mountain biker tricky board walk sections through meadows, yet rewards success with outstanding views along the way.
