The besy family trail centre I have ever been to. We took our children 3 times during a recent holiday. They are 2yrs (balance bike) and 5 yrs old. Hours of fun on the easy pump track and skills area. They both did the geen trail with no problems and my 5 yr old girl did the blue after daddy checked it out. She was so chuffed with herself.
I had a had a quick blast around the red with black extension, which can be ridden quickly. Would be graded blue with red elsewhere.
We will definitely be going back soon.

Good Points
Being relatively new to mountain biking this centre has provided a great introduction. The blue trail is suitable for family rides (my son is 9yo) but can also be great fun with fast flowing sections when riding with your mates.
The red route steps it up slightly and leaves a grin on my face each time I ride it. Again fast, twisty sections with a few oportunities to get airborne (slightly).
The black route is just enough to make a beginner curious about bigger things.
Alongside the trails are the skills and pump tracks, these (skills in particular) are entertaining for kids, big and small alike and allow you to safely hone your bike control.
The mixed routes never pose a problem and everything is verywell maintained.
The centre is also home to a great cafe, go ape and and always has an event or two happening.
Bad Points
Regarding the trails I would say that my only negative would be that the black route could be longer.
It wouldn't hurt to have a larger selection and I am now looking to try other centres simply to get this variety.
The skills area is quite compact and the pump track easy to tire of - that said the kids stay on it for ages quite happily while you have a drink.
