I really enjoyed this place and would really like to get back soon. Trails are flowey and fun. not hugely technical, but if you're after something to make you grin and to test your basic skills at speed, this is great.

Great scenery. Will put a smile on your face!
Bad Points
Access to the two optional reds towards the end are very steep and lack grip. When it rains, it bloody rains!

I'm usually a roadie. Found the difficulty of the trails well suited to my basic skill set on a full sus bike. Compared to where I live (Surrey) this was very hilly but great fun. I'd recommend to anyone in the area and will defs be returning myself, the Mrs and kids did the Stickman trail and I went and did this one. Perfect.

Great to have a MTB trail in the county that provides a great introduction to trails but also provides more seasoned riders a challenge if you go at a pace.

User Review

Good Points
Lots of areas to get off the trails and rest or allow others to pass, Great setting with cafe, toilets, parking and kids play areas.
Smooth well looked after trails of around 12miles that can be used by all abilitys.
First freindly trails in mid cornwall.
Bad Points
The trails are still new and very popular so can be busy at weekends, but appart that there a great addtion to cornwall and hopefully these will progress to harder trails in the future.

First visit proved very enjoyable; not the most technical or gnarly of venues but plenty of climbs and descents to keep you smiling. The trails flowed well and the additional Red runs, kept things interesting. A place where you can just enjoy your ride and have fun. A good morning or afternoon venue,with a Stonkin cafe!

Good Points
Good parking
Well maintained
Nice flow
No dramas

Could be longer
Additional reds or maybe a black would be great
Struggling to see much wrong, but those who want a technical and/or scary ride should look somewhere

Bodmin Beast
A truely great ride highly recommend.

User Review

Good Points
A great day out in fantastic setting. £3 to park all day. £25 all year visit as often as you want. I ride here twice a week sometimes more and I never get tired of riding this trail it is varied and some good hard sections. I am 53 years of age and it takes me around 40 miniutes I usually ride the trail twice. There are a block of toliets and changing room. There are also BBQ free to use well worth knowing. I will often ride and my family and inlaws go for a walk and we meet up later. The cafe is well worth a visit. I love the ride in the dry but just as much fun in the wet knowing you can change at the end. Sections of this ride are not for the faint hearted. I would highly recommend combining this ride with the Cycle Hub 15 miniutes drive away. Hub first Beast second if you want to get changed.
Bad Points
I would not recommend the ride for a family the Cycle Hub 15 miniutes away much more suitable. The road entering Cardinham in narrow and some people drive with no consideration to others so be carful.

Great morning riding. Well worth a visit. Relatively short (about hour and 20 mins) but downhills are fun and fast.

Rode the beast for the umpteenth time 2 days ago and it never fails to put a grin on my face. Ok it's not that technical including all the reds but it's just good fun. In comparison to other centers I have ridden at it is up there with the leaders.
Bad Points
Some hatchbacks are to tight.

Great venue for a quick fix, not to demanding or technical, dialled in dave (red) is worth doing to avoid the fire track. Hardly a red though. Hells teeth (red) is worth the effort if you like bursting your lungs to get to the start! A nice bit of quite steep down hill. I have done the whole circuit in about 50min's. including both Red sections. A great morning out and you can easily combine Cardingham with Llanhydrock which is just up the road. Good café and plenty of parking (£2 for 2 hours or £3 all day.
Would like to see more technical features and a separate Red trail with some black sections.
The track is in pretty good condition compared to other centres and no rooty bits!! so apart from my "bad points" below Cardingham is a great ride.
Bad Points
Most of the switchbacks on the uphill sections are far to tight and ruin the flow.
Some of the berms could do with being higher.
