Clark & Kent was contracted by Forestry Commission to install a new 500-metre length of trail within the Dalby Forest Yorkshire. Dalby Forest is located on the southern slopes of the North York Moors and offers over 8,000 acres of woodland with many way-marked cycling and walking trails available for visitors of all abilities.
We were contracted to build a blue grade mountain bike trail suitable for intermediate cyclists or mountain bikers with basic off-road riding skills. The trail construction incorporated berms, rolling crown switchback turns, cambered features on a generally downhill flowing trail that provides an exciting challenge for rider of all abilities.
The the Dalby Forest MTN trail project was completed within a three-week build time and much of the work was carried out in adverse weather conditions. The additional length of track within the forest has been extremely well received by clients and visitors. The downhill trail is a short standalone trail with jumps drops and technical riding that can be completed by single traction.
Dalby Forest is within the North York Moors National Park and is home to some 55 miles of cycle and mountain bike trails, downhill routes and a bike park. As well as a wide range of family-friendly cycle trails there are some demanding Red and Black Grade XC trails that make up a world cup standard XC loop. The latter trails require advanced cycling skills and a good level of fitness.
