Been riding QECP for years and its always getting better.

The blue good track has nothing too steep either up or down and is good for all abilities. The trail stays dry almost all year round as its gravel based. It's a bit like sections of Swinley, smooth and fast when pointing down with steady climbs. I ride this trail with my 12-year-old son.

The red is more natural and has off camber steeper sections but still great fun. It's a good track to test your skills and the descents will put a smile on your face. All jumps and small drop-offs all rollable or can be avoided altogether if you want. The climbs on the red are more rooty and therefore more challenging.

I would recommend warming up on the blue and then dropping in on the red.

All the work done and underway at QECP have really brought the park back into the limelight after nearly 20 years. The new updated route is still on the short side but still packs in nearly 1000ft of climbing and descent, is almost all singletrack and includes a multitude of different types of riding to get your teeth into, hard climbs, masses of roots, steep burms, tables and drops. You'll want to do two at least two laps to get the most out of the trail if you've not been before! After that you'll e ready to hit the on-site cafe and grab some lovely cake :p

Good Points
Good variety of features and trail styles. Very little fire road. Active trail building group. Easy access to extensive local bridleway network and the south downs for some properly epic days out. Easy access, good cheap parking and cafe.
Bad Points
Red trail a bit short ( just do it twice if once is not enough ;) ), blue/purple beginner trail in need of update ( some time in 2013 ). Gets muddy in winter, but hey this is mountain biking right?
