Danbury mountain bike trails are in Essex so it's great for local riders as well as attracting riders from London too.

Danbury consists of a freeride and downhill area and a fair bit of natural XC riding..

Danbury Freeride and Downhill Area

  • The local community of riders manages the Danbury freeride area. It consists of lots of little tight flowy downhill runs interspersed with some one-off features. A hip, river gaps, kickers etc. Many folk use this National Trust land (not just cyclists) so please respect the area and other users. 

Danbury Cross Country

  • There are lots of woods here which you can weave together to put together a good trail ride. 


Baddow Hall Pump Track

  • The Baddow Hall pump track is 50m by 30m track and is just a few miles away at Baddow Hall Park, New Road, Great Baddow, Essex, CM2 7QT

Danbury is my local ride area so have a fondness for it.
There is plenty of riding in the area but none of it marked and can be pretty spread out.
Definitely need a local to show you around to get the best out of it. We have pieced together a pleasant 15 mile loop making up the most of it.
If you just want the freeride area then head for Copt Hill and you should find it. There is enough to keep you entertained for an hour or two.

Good Points
Some nice areas to ride XC, if you like exploring then it will suit you.
Good mixture and some nice little downhill quick sections. Small runs as it is Essex.
As the highest point is 92m int he area you never have a major climb in one go.
Freeride area can be fun to improve skills.
Bad Points
If you dont know or local or like reading maps it is hard to find all the good spots.
Can be very muddy in winter, a lot of horse riding in the area.
For some bizarre reason people tend to walk there dogs in the bombholes in freeride area so be careful on your first few runs till you get to know the terrain.
