Tover, nr Coniston


If you park near Torver (about 1/2 mile north) by a left-hand T junction. First you ride up the first lane until you reach a farm house, take the first right by the house and follow the obvious trail upwards. After about 1 mile of undulating trail, you reach the main Walna Scar road (calling it a road ?). Turn left onto this and continue to the top, about another mile. Now turn back. The first 1/2 mile of the descent is unbelievably rocky. After a very rocky gully, there is 1/4 mile of open grassland to a bridge which has loads of natural ramps, drop-offs, etc. After the bridge, keep to the main trail until you reach the trail you ascended by and turn onto it. This is where the real fun starts - fast, whoopy, gigantic water splashes, excellent fast corners and a mental slate path descent.
