Box quarry hill review

So much fun, I am a beginner hardtail rider and found that in these woods, it's really fun to just follow your nose, have fun and see where it takes you you can't really go wrong. Not much skill needed for a Lot of fun!

Good points:

Great paths to just follow your guts and take the jumps as they come.

Bad points:

A bit boring if your expirienced, the jumps and paths are not very varied

Would you recommend?

yes

Small playground

This is just an old quarry really, but over the years many generations of local riders have spent their youths here building up small little trails, jumps and routes through bombholes. It's definitely on the cheeky side, even with the bridleways running through the centre, though as long as you're sensible you're unlikely to be stopped by the landowner. Having grown up here and recently revisited not much seems to have changed really - spend a couple of hours here and you'll have seen everything there is, but you might not have perfected all the lines. Best visited with a couple of mates as there's lines you'll want to hit again and again and encourage each other to go faster and higher. The Quarryman's Arms just down the road is well worth a visit - careful of the scrumpy served off a barrel on the bar if driving!

Good points:

Hardly ever crowded! Good opportunities for building up skills in jumps and small drops

Bad points:

Be wary of horse riders and ramblers It's probably more of a "locals" joint, rather than anything worth advertising as worth of a detour.

Would you recommend?

*No*
