Contrary to other reviews I think this place is actually best if you're looking to get some XC training in.

The hill from the carpark is a real tester, and there has been occassion where I've got to the top and wanted to head home again! There are some challenging technical climbs and one or two nice decents, but often the terrain is quite 'samey'. To make this into a proper day out your best off pairing it with Cragg Quarry, and have a little session on the skills area in the middle of the quarry.

There have been plans for a cafe and facility for some time, but nothing has materialised. That area of things are letting it down at the moment. Other than when it's icey the place is pretty weather proof as it drains fairly well so is a good option when other places might be water-logged


Keep your eyes out for the Brownback XC seriesthat runs every year, great local event with the chance to get involved in some racing.
