I love Cardinham, it is the first trail that I rode and ride it as often as I can as it is great for a good workout.
The cafe is great (If not a little pricey, but aren't they always).
There are changing facilities but no shower which would be a welcome addition after a muddy ride.

Good Points
The blue trails are well maintained easy to follow with with fun fast downhill sections and tough but realistic uphill climbs.
The two red trails are easy to ride:
Dialed in Dave offers a bit of technical, drop off, rocky riding, nice sweeping curves offer good technical cornering on mixed ground.

Hell's Teeth has a hell of climb to get too, I have not managed to ride up to it but once you get to the top there is a worthwhile fun ride through the woods before you get to the steep downhill with nice tight turns, roots and depending on the time of year really mixed ground.

Dialed in Dave is fine for riders of all abilities whilst the downhill section of Hell's teeth really needs experience with tight steep turns.

The blue and Dialed in Dave trails are great for all skill levels as your speed will dictate the difficulty level.

There are changing facilities but no shower.

There is good parking (I would recommend getting a Forestry commission pass as it will save money if you are a regular user).

There are family friendly walks if your family is not up for the main ride routes.
Bad Points
The down side to Cardinham is the lack of trickier trails, once you have learned the course you will can only work on your speed.

The red trails are tame compared to most so anyone looking for a real challenge will leave disappointed

No real Jumps or really technical areas.

No Skills areas or pump track.

No Bike cleaning area.
