The Malvern Hills are not enormous (in fact as the bird flies they are just 13km from North to South) and they have such a tight crisis crossing bridleway network.
The terrain is steep (1,394 feet above sea level) so has sharp climbs and descents, it's tough, rooty, rocky, has a great ridge line to ride along and drains well.
The Malvern Hills cover a number of county borders including Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire and are very popular with walkers so you need to watch out for them on the trails. We recommend you ride as much at off-peak times as you can to get the best out of them.
- Back On Track have some routes and maps pretty much starting from near their shop. There is an 8km easy route, a 16km medium route and a 24km hard route.
- SingleTrack also has some good routes and maps. There is a 24km Blue run, a 13 - 16km Red route and an 8km Green trail.
