Upgraded Delamere

Delamere has been upgraded at last. There is a new car park with great facilities onsite including a big cafe with undercover outdoor seating. For bikers there is a fully stocked bike shop with bike hire and bike wash for £1.50. There is a new 4km blue graded trail which flows nicely joining on from the grey trails that were previously there. Delamere also has Old Pale Hill within it's borders which is a short climb up just left of the visitor centre. There are some off piste tracks coming down back through the woodland area which are fun for a quick blast. Of course there is Manley Hill on the other side of the woodland which is good for sessioning with a little track and a few jump if you look for them.

Good points:

Brand new facilities - cafe with outdoor seating. Bike shop with hire and bike wash. New blue graded trail

Bad points:

None for me but people may not want to pay for parking which they say goes back into the development of the park/forestry

Would you recommend?

Yes

Delamere forest trails

I will be going back as mentioned before but this place needs more markers in place as I found myself blasting down dirt trails to be confronted with dead ends or trails not passable due to tree felling hence having to go back on my journey. Did enjoy going up to the old pale opposite the cafe/car park which takes you to the transmitter mast and with some great views which is worth the hard work biking it up there. While i was out I just said to myself get lost and follow any trail and see what happens which i did but this place needs more markers to guide us on the way but this may be due to my lack of knowledge of the trails so i stand to be corrected. One point I will mention is you can park on ashton rd at the back end of the forest for free then bike it to the trails and not have to worry about the car park closing while you are out having fun.

Good points:

Easy to find with lots of facilities like cafe, bike shop and toilets etc but parking is at a cost.

Bad points:

To be fair it's my first time on a bike at delamere and I will be going again but i felt let down by the lack of marker signs helping me on my way. After 5 mins i found myself following a fellow mtb rider as he looked like a regular to the trails which helped me gain some knowledge and direction. I agree with other comments on here as it feels more geared up towards the walkers than bikers.

great for a quick spin or practice your skills or just link it all together for a good enduro ride. takes a few recce missions though.

Good points:

if you take the time to get to know the forest then you can put together a decent ride.

Bad points:

the trails need riding more to keep in a decent condition.

Would you recommend?
