Cycle Routes

 

There are over 125km of nationally graded self guided Cycle Trails in Kielder Water and Forest Park. All the trails have been overhauled and re-waymarked.  Routes are given a grading according to their difficulty.  Learn about the National Trail Grading System.

There are also 5 circular routes in the North Tyne Valley, that start and finish in Bellingham.  They have been plotted by Northumberland National Park, and conisist of quiet country lanes and open moorland, and take in parts of the National Cycle Routes network.

Osprey Trail

 

Starting from Kielder Castle heading out along the Forest Drive, you soon arrive at the first section of smooth, rolling singletrack. Then turning off the Forest Drive at a picnic area, you climb through the forest to Castle Hill.

At this point heading straight on gives you a long descent to the Lakeside Way, and then turn right back to Kielder (the short loop). Taking the long version leads you to the start of a singletrack climb all the way to the top of Hill 361. Stop a while and take in the views of Deadwater Fell and beyond into Scotland.

From here the fun really begins with flowing singletrack almost all the way to meet the Lakeside Way (North side) and return to Kielder.
