This mountain bike route of 18.4 miles climbs through Macc Forest to the Cat and Fiddle pub before looping back through Three Shire Heads. The ride is a good taster of rocky Peak District riding, and includes some great descents.
1. Start from the Trentaback car park opposite the Trentaback Reservoir (GR961711). Turn left out of the car park and descend to a junction by the reservoir. Turn right and follow the lane, keeping the reservoir on the left, to a junction at the Leather’s Smithy pub. Turn right and climb the lane to a gate at the start of a wide gravel track on the left (GR959717). Go through the gate a climb the concessional bridleway into Macc Forest. Bear left and go past a gate on the right to a forked junction. Take the right hand track and continue climbing to a four-way junction at a stone building. Go up the second track on the right for a steep climb on the wide forest track in the direction of the sign pointing to Walker Barn. The track immediately bears left and climbs to a gate at the edge of the forest. After the gate turn right for a short but steep climb to the next junction (GR962731).
