Description

A pleasant climb leads to a midway option of a fun, flowing descent littered with berms and rolling jumps, or the continuation of the climb to the top of Hospital Fell Ridge. From here there are great views across the Northern Peaks of the Lake District and an even longer, fun-filled, fast-flowing descent down sweet singletrack.

Mostly stable trail tread with some variability featuring larger and more unavoidable obstacles that may include, but not be limited to: bigger stones, roots, steps, and narrow curves. Compared to lower intermediate, technical difficulty is more advanced and grades of slopes are steeper. Ideal for upper intermediate riders.
