Editor's Review:

April 29th 2006 - I rode it, late last year after it had been raining and before trail improvements, it was not brilliant then. But after some trail The North Face Trail, Grizedale at Topsy Turvy. maintenance, improvements and dry weather I got to ride it over the Easter weekend. The trail is made up of proper single track, board walks and fire road, all combining into a 10 mile loop around one side of Grizedale forest. The single track is not as fast as any 7Stanes trail, but that is only because the small stones have not been removed and there is only gravel on some parts of the trail, which makes for a more natural trail, although I would prefer a gravel track then I would be able to ride faster. The board walks are a nice touch. There not technical, although if your are a good rider there are some challenges dotted around. There are also two board walk berms which came as a surprise to one of my friends who loves burms, they are built well and do a dam good job of getting you around the corners. On the note of burms, there are few on the trail and some jump-able humps as well ...

All in all it is a nice trail, well worthy of riding as it is the only one I know of in Cumbria.
Go ride it if you have not already ridden it!
