Hopton Woods

Mountain Biking in the Hopton Wood

Description:

Hopton Woods is the home of mountain biking in Shropshire.  Come and test yourself out on the warm-up loop before heading into the wood.

It has 32 km of forest roads, tracks and single tracks covering 350 hectares of woodland. There are colour coded routes for both leisure and thrill seeking off road cyclists and mountain bikes. The blue route is the family track and offers an introduction to mountain biking for novices and young children. It is also close to the main car park and picnic area.

All the trails at Hopton are largely unsurfaced so the way they ride changes according to the weather and the season.  Please ride within your ability (and that of your bike) and with appropriate safety gear.
