The adventure trail cuts through a number of wooded section - some steep some nice and easy. Here's the first wood

The first bomb hole. It's a lot steeper than it looks and we'll be making a feature out of this section raging from easy to...steep.

Back into the woods, lumpy bumpy ground but easy enough

And then onto a steep climb up the ridgeway - again, this is steeper than it looks.

There's lots of work to be done around this area, but it's going to be a fun place to ride

Looks good.
Will you need to be an off-road guru to do it or is it doable by novices??
What about tyres... mine are more road orientated Trail Attcks than proper knobblies??

Totally weather dependent. If it rains then it's going to be a skating rink for all on any tyre. If it stays dry then you should be okay on most all tyres. We were out today with one bike on a set of knobblies and the other on road tyres both were fine.

There will always be an easy option for the inexperienced to bypass tougher sections.
